I have a requirement where in users download the PDF form from our public website to their desktop and fill out the form and Submit it to HTTPS server (that is hosting the servlet). The PDF will have have an "Owner" password with acrobat 7 compatibility and 128 bit AES encrpytion.
I have 3 questions mainly:
1. During the data transfer from user's desktop to the servlet, is the data encrypted? If so, what level of encryption.
2. If in the above case, user opens the form from within the browser, Is the browser handling the encryption or the the PDF?
3. If user stores the form they filled out, is the data stored as encrypted. If it is, how would the user who wishes to see this form decrypt it?
Appreciate your quick response.
