    Why modification protected PDF documents cannot be indexed by IFilter 11 with SharePoint Search?


      Hello everyone!


      I have a SharePoint farm which stores a big number of protected PDF documents. Those PDF documents are protected against modification and printing! They allow copy of content and screen readers though.


      I had IFilter 9.0 installed and I saw that none of my protected documents could be found... I decided to upgrade the IFilter to its latest version (11) in order to be sure it was not something which was already fixed.


      Problem is that even with IFilter 11, my protected PDF documents are still not indexed! Is that a limitation of the IFilter? What kind of security configuration does the IFilter component supports?


      Thanks in advance for your help!!
