Is it possible to remove the possibility for users to encrypt documents, both using certificates and password? I am a aware that a combination of removing DigSig.api and PKKlite.api, and setting FIPSMode will do the job. But is it a better way of achieving this?
Are you talking about a closed enterprise environment where you can customize the Acrobat deployment package? If so then removing the plugins is your only option; if not then it's impossible.
Yes it is a closed enterprise environment. Thank you for your help.
I removed the beforementioned plug-ins, but unfortunately this interefered with other critical Acrobat plug-ins. I created a pdf with buttons and actions, saved the document and closed Acrobat. When tried to open the document with Acrobat Pro the program would crash. After I reinstalled the plug-ins this behaviour stopped. Do I really have to sacrifice program functionality and reliability to keep my users from encrypting documents?
