When opening a protected .pdf via http, is it possible to send the password as a parameter in the URL? I want to use some of the security features in protected .pdf, but don't want to force the user to actually type a password.
For example, in the link below, brown-teddy-bear.pdf is a password-protected .pdf file, with password "coffeecup." Is something like the following available?
<a href="http://www.example.com/brown-teddy-bear.pdf#password=coffeecup">Brown Teddy Bear</a>
This throws a "This operation is not allowed." error.
I checked the spec for 9 at the link below, but it's not in there.
