Hi Anish,


Thanks for your inquiry. A secured PDF file has two passwords, user password and owner password. Your PDF file has empty user password but owner password is set, so API is returning correct results. Please check attached image for the details, hopefully it will help.

Please feel free to contact us for any further assistance.

Hi Tilal,
But while opening the PDF it is directly opening with out asking the password.
So our customer is asking why it is problem while converting?

Hi,
Is there any way to avoid to check owner password while checking whether the file is protected?

Hi Anish,

Thanks for you inquiry. I am afraid, It is PDF specification that a encrypted file can not be manipulated without passing owner password. To manipulate file you need to pass owner password while opening.

Document pdfDocument = new Aspose.Pdf.Document(myDir + "PasswordProtected.pdf","ownerpassword");

Hi Anish,

Thanks for your inquiry. Please check following code snippet, you can use HasOpenPassword and HasEditPasswordit would help you to accomplish the task.

But I am afraid if you skip checking owner password even then you will not be able to edit source document without passing owner password.

PdfFileInfo pdfFileInfo
= new PdfFileInfo(myDir+“Leonard Martin Guardian 2014.pdf”);<o:p></o:p>

if (pdfFileInfo.HasOpenPassword )

Console.WriteLine("The given PDF file is password protected and has open password.");

if (pdfFileInfo.HasEditPassword)

Console.WriteLine("The given PDF file is password protected and has owner password.");

Please feel free to contact us for any further assistance.
