Is there a way to set either security policy in Acrobat via GPO, so all a user would have to do is select:
Tools > Protection > Encrypt > select premade security policy (password protected)
Or a way to set the Adobe PDF printer preferences with Adobe PDF Security as 'Use the last known security preferences' with predefined settings via GPO.
We need to set up security on 100 or so acrobats and I am struggling to find a way to do this.
If you need the registry entries look in AIM (Administrator's Information Manager).
Seems an easy job. Find the registry that changes these values (either HKLM or HKCU) and save it as .reg file
Apply policy to the OU and change the following,
User Configuration (if HKCU) or Computer Configuration (if HKLM) >Policies>|Windows Settings | Scripts (Logon/Logoff).
Under Logon properties, provide the .reg file
Well if you can point me to this registry key i would appreciate it.
Applying the security settings via 'print to pdf' via gpo would be really handy right about now.
I managed to find a security file (security-policy.acrodata) that contains the details of security policies, I managed to copy this to another pc and the policy was displayed in adobe. However it doesn't save the password and a password must be entered manually.
Also I don't think the above would work for Acrobat 8 (we use both versions 8 and 10) and it doesn't make the security policy I create as the only favourited one as default.
