Pdf should have time bound password facility for data privacy and security
This is Ankit. I am working as a project manager - mechanical design for complete project proposal of design and development of machines.
For our project requirements, we need to send our design and manufacturing drawings to different vendors/ manufacturers.
Because of data security, thiis drawings we are providing in hard copies instead of soft copies. Ad there is a chance of design copy in case of soft copy provision.
Id in pdf we can develop such security facility, such that the PDFs that we send to any vendor/manufacturers, those PDFs must have password protected and the password must be time bound.
Also, we can chek to develop such facility so that any vendor can't download or copy those PDFs to any usb drive or any other kind of device.
Only he/she can open the pdf with password, view it and can able to take the print out of it. After some stipulated time period, that password also should get vanished and that pdf should not be opened.
This way, we can protect out trade secrets with us even after sharing with others
Kindly check the feasibility to develop the same in Acrobat reader and provide it asap to all users.
