StarForce Increases The Level Of Security For PDF Documents
Last week StarForce Technologies, copy protection solutions developer, released StarForce PDF 1.1 for better security of text and graphical content from illegal use and unauthorized access to protected PDF documents with Adobe® products and other applications. The new solution is mainly addressed to creators and publishers of e-Books, e-Zines, encyclopedias, tutorials, lectures, scientific and statistical reports, corporate data, legal documents, and other PDF documents that owners might want to protect. Currently the company offers two different versions of StarForce PDF 1.1: for CD-ROM/DVD-ROM and CD-R. The StarForce DVD-R project is in development.
StarForce PDF 1.1 new features include:
- Expiration date limitation – Disc expiration date feature. End users will be notified of it in advance, file access being blocked by the protection system later;
- Viewer options – enables end users to use Acrobat Reader or Adobe Acrobat for viewing protected PDFs;
- Print screen blocking – Enables PDF owner to protect a document from the content copying, exporting, or saving as an image for OCR restoration;
- Print file blocking Enables to permit or denied document printing at the implementation stage.
With all features put into service, the protection suppresses any operation with a protected document, except viewing, disabling its editing and saving under different names. The content becomes inaccessible via Acrobat API, which prevents file modification via plug-ins. To access the protected contents an end user to use a licensed disc CD-ROM or DVD-ROM and enter the 24-digit key. The Protection Plug-In, which initiates the StarForce protection module, is automatically installed in a selected viewer-application at the first accesswhen the end-user accesses the disc for the fist time.
