exception loading PDF with 256-bit password encryption

Postby tr888 » Sat Aug 13, 2016 4:25 pm

Using latest eval version of commercial PDFViewer, I change a field to readonly, set the security on a PDF, and saved it to disk.


<snip>

// we are looping through widget.FieldsWidget.List.Count

PdfField f = widget.FieldsWidget.List[i] as PdfField;

if (f.Name == "test")
{
PdfTextBoxFieldWidget tf = f as PdfTextBoxFieldWidget;
tf.Text = "X3G-T";
f.Flatten = true;
f.ReadOnly = true;
break;
}
<snip>


pdf.Security.OwnerPassword = ownerPassword;
pdf.Security.UserPassword = "spire#";
pdf.Security.Permissions = PdfPermissionsFlags.AccessibilityCopyContent | PdfPermissionsFlags.CopyContent | PdfPermissionsFlags.FillFields | PdfPermissionsFlags.FullQualityPrint | PdfPermissionsFlags.Print;
pdf.Security.KeySize = PdfEncryptionKeySize.Key256Bit;

using (FileStream fs = new FileStream(@"c:\encrypted3.PDF", FileMode.CreateNew))
{
pdf.SaveToStream(fs, FileFormat.PDF);
}
pdf.Close();
}


When I open this PDF in Acrobat, it behaves properly, asking for the user password, and with the correct permissions.

However, when I later attempt to open it in Spire, supplying the ownerPassword (the permissions password)

// pdf.Security.KeySize = PdfEncryptionKeySize.Key256Bit; // tried both ways, with/without this line
pdf.LoadFromFile(dialog.FileName, ownerPassword);

there is an exception in Spire.Pdf.dll :

Source array was not long enough. Check srcIndex and length, and the array's lower bounds.

Dear tr888,

Thanks for your feedback.
I have tested your scenario but sorry that I didn't reproduce your issue. Could you please provide us the documents( original document and the result document after setting the security ) so that we can work out it ASAP ?

Sincerely,
Betsy

I will have to put together a sample later this morning. Unfortunately, the PDF I was working with had some real information in it which I cannot send out :)

Dear tr888,

Thanks for your reply.
You can send the sample file to us( Support@e-iceblue.com) via eamil.
Also, you can change or remove the real information as long as the document can reproduce your issue, and then send it to us for investigation. We promise to keep it confidential and won’t use it for any other purpose.

Sincerely,
Betsy

I downloaded Spire.Office and the Hotfix, and am still getting this error.

The PDF was created and encrypted using Adobe Acrobat Pro version XI.

May I ask, what level of AES-256 bit encryption does Spire support? I believe Adobe Acrobat Pro XI has jumped ahead from R5 to R6.

Is Spire able to open a PDF which has been encrypted with an ownerPassword in Adobe Acrobat Pro version XI? Can you please confirm that?

When I attempt to open this same PDF using iTextSharp, I get an exception message that the "Encryption type is unknown R=6".

Dear tr888,

Thanks for your feedback.
Spire.PDF can open the file which is encrypted with an ownerPassword, could you please provide sample document and the password so that we can investigate it ?

Thanks,
Betsy
