The following security options are located in the Set Document Security web-form:
Encryption Level. Set the type of encryption for opening a password-protected document. The Acrobat 3.0 And Later option uses a low encryption level (40-bit RC4), while the other options use a high encryption level (128-bit RC4). Be aware that anyone using an earlier version of Acrobat cannot open a PDF document with a higher compatibility setting. For example, if you select Acrobat 7.0 And Later compatibility for a document's security setting, the document cannot be opened in Acrobat 6.0 or earlier.

Require A Password To Open The Document. Select this option and type a password in the Document Open Password box to prevent users from opening the document unless they type the password you specify.

Document Open Password. Specify a password to help prevent users from opening the document (or document attachments) unless they type the password you specify. Use Retype Password field to avoid saving of mistyped password.

Permissions Password. Select the Password Required to Change Permissions and Passwords option, and specify a Permissions password to restrict users from printing and editing. Users cannot change these security settings unless they type the Permissions password that you specify. You cannot use the same password used for the Document Open password.

No Printing. Select this option to prevent users from printing the PDF document.

No Changing the Document. Prevents the user from making any changes to the document that are listed in the Changes Allowed menu, such as filling in form fields and adding comments.
