> As there is a security hole with creating PDF files on the disk, I want to print the content of the PDF document directly to printer some way. Is it possible to do?
First of all, what is the security hole?
Second, you do realize your OS print spool uses a file, right?
Those files are confidential files. If they reside on the disk there may b a chance of printing them again and again. It should not happen like that. So that I want to print the document content from the memory itself.
Hope you understand my concern.
So by "security hole" you actually just mean that you haven't set any sort of protection on your PDFs.
You have many options - PDF security will allow you to set a document so that it can be opened, but not printed without a password (the document contents are encrypted with this method). You can encrypt the entire document so that it cannot be opened without a password. You also have the option of Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management Server ES, which is a full DRM solution of PDF documents.
The first 2 options can be done from directly inside Acrobat, the 3rd options requires LiveCycle Rights Management Server ES.
Infact I applied security to my files. I put passwords for opening/printing the files. But that can be misused sometimes, bcoz of that we want the print immediately when we create it and print it.
> But that can be misused sometimes
'Misused'? I guess you'll have to explain to me why encrypting a document with 256-bit AES is a security vulnerability, because I certainly don't agree.
