I create a flow on LiveCycle Workbench that print a document (with policy applied or without).
So I want be use a safe communication channel betwwen LiveCycle server and printer, to avoid any person intercept this message between both and have access to that file.
I have a doubt about sendToPrinter operation and printer protocols:
- The protocols (CUPS, Direct IP, LPD, CIFS) available on LiveCycle provide this security that I want?
Reading the documentation I don't find this information.

We simply support those protocols you mention; passing an un-encrypted print stream to each of them
So it is as secure as the path to the printer; which each protocol supports.
Very generally for a secure path the printer needs to receive an encrypted print stream and decrypt it on receipt; not a common printer operation.
These protocols may support such an integration with specialized printer security capabilities; I don’t know; but LiveCycle does not.
Generally print security is handled by keeping the network conversation between the source and the printer within a secure network.
