    You want Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management ES:

    I know that LiveCycle Rights Management ES handles this, but all I need is to tap an existing stream of doents (published to PDF via automation), and apply these controls:
    1. Disable Printing
    2. Disable Copying
    3. Disable Editing
    4. Add Expiration date

    I don't need a sledge hammer (even if I could justify it). I just need to apply the above controls via the Acrobat SDK APIs if it can be done.

    The SDK APIs doentation is ~1,000 pages, and searching on "disable printing" or "doent controls" yields no answers. The program samples guide doesn't seem to cover this either. So, is it possible to apply these doent controls using the Acrobat SDK?

    Thanks.

    Standard Acrobat security. You can write a plug-in to set doent
    security. This means there is a surprisingly sharp learning curve to
    this.

    Not a part of the Acrobat security model at all. You would need a DRM
    system behind it.
    >The SDK APIs doentation is ~1,000 pages
    Actually, over ten thousand pages and growing.

    Security. These are simply security settings. You should, before going
    near the programming, be sure you understand the security model, at
    least as much of it as you can set in the user interface.
