  1. Protecting PDFs from Page Extraction / Better Portfolio Protection

    Hello,

    Pertaining to Adobe Acrobat, is it possible to add a protection feature that prohibits files/pages from being extracted from portfolios or multiple file PDFs? It seems odd that this feature has not already been added as it freely allows for files to be saved and used for whatever purpose, which is anything but secure. I think this feature should be considered as it would allow for people's work to be better protected.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. a no-security version of acrobat with none of the time-wasting "features" i don't want or need

    dear acrobat. a lot of legal professionals use your software. we have no - zero - zip - nada use for SECURED PDFs. These are a huge time-waster for me. No courts require or care about PDF security. It just makes my job harder. Please release a version of Adobe that automatically strips all security from PDFs and doesn't automatically create unwanted and useless restrictions that WASTE MY TIME.

  5. How to bypass a PDF password

    I created a PDF document of around 2MB file size and then went to Protection. Added both password to open and edit, both with 256-Bit AES. Saved the file with a 25 characters password.

    Now I Googled this "How to bypass a PDF Password", the third link is this "https://smallpdf.com/unlock-pdf".

    I dropped the encrypted file into the slot provided. assuming that it cant ***** it.

    But unfortunately the password was cracked both from the opening and editing end.

    I find this very disturbing !

    Kindly check this and let me know how to ensure that a password protected…

  7. Certificates & Digitally Signing

    The certificates do out-date, different from the business ones they expire in 1 to 2 years, so all signed document present very often "problems with the validation", you should change they way the errors are handle, since a not changed document, legally signed in the time period of the signature, is a complete different story from a changed document, or not valid signature.

    Once again all signed documents will have expired signature, and it does not really mean there is an issue, just a new signature.

  9. Allow files that are protected to be attached to other documents, but still not be allowed to be edited

    I have clients that want to attach my drawings to their pdfs but I protect my drawings from editing. They want me to unprotect them and allow editing. I do not want to do that. I would like adobe to have a security feature where you allow attaching to other documents but you do not allow editing the document that is already protected. Clients are very angry that I wont give them the password.

  11. [BUG] dgn.de eIDAS certificate not verifying correctly

    Certificates issued by dgn.de fail to verifiy even though they're eIDAS compliant. It seems that the certificate which is used to sign the OCSP response is not in the known list (which it should be as it is also an eIDAS certificate). For OCSP the certificate is used: dgnservice qOCSP 23:PN.
    The company has also discovered the issue.

  12. Being able to remove the ability to use digital and/or drawn signatures and initials in a PDF file

    Simple. An option to say that "this document does not allow digital signatures", and another that prevents users from doing sign and fill functions so they can't inject or insert a drawn or imported signature.

    This is because we have a form that we have applicants fill, but it must be signed and initialed by hand. Applicants left unsupervised do lots of things we don't want them to do.

  14. Digital sign on 20 pages need 20 times selection of Certificate tool and saving 20 times!

    IF i am having a pdf docs which i need to sign on all the pages, i need to sign this each time on each page and save each tine after each signature, each time selection of tools is also a pain!! don't understand why each time after placing a certificate, pdf asking to save after signature/certificate are placed, it should give a final confirmation once everything is done. i can understand its for security but at least the person who is signing should have this option that he can sign on all docs and at the end save everything.…

  16. Handling of Length entry in PDF 2.0 encryption dictionary is not compliant with ISO 32000-2

    Table 20 in clause 7.6.2 of ISO 32000-2:2020 (and 2017 for that matter) states that the Length entry is deprecated, and only meaningful if the security handler version is 2 or 3. Nonetheless, Acrobat and Reader refuse to decrypt files that were encrypted with a v5 security handler that doesn't set this entry. I've attached two files that were generated in the exact same way, barring the absence of the Length entry in one of them.

  17. Crashes upon Save after inserting signature

    I am running Acrobat Pro 2020 version 2020.001.30018 (most current version per the software) on OS 11.0.1 Big Sur.

    I have had this problem numerous times with at least 5-6 different forms (for example, self-created from Word, IRS-generated forms, etc.) in the last month. I open a form and complete fields and save it - no problem. Then I insert a signature - no problem. BUT, when I then try to save again (after insertion of signature jpg, always the final step), the Adobe window goes blank and I see the infinite spinning wheel. The only option is to force…

  18. Show Key Usage on "Sign with a Digital ID" prompt

    Requesting that the Certificate Key Usage be presented on the "Sign with a Digital ID" prompt. Being able to see the key usage would ensure users are picking the certificate with Non-Repudiation in environments where users have two certificates with Digital Signatures.

    Attached is an example of the current prompt and an example of the desired prompt.
