Support of AES256 encryption

We have similar requirements to devmanager, but we need to encrypt the PDF generated by Aspose.Words using AES256 encryption. Unfortunately, this encryption option doesn’t seem to be available with Aspose.Words.

In our (slightly different) case, to achieve this requirement, will it be necessary to license both Aspose.Words and Aspose.Pdf products?


Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, Aspose.Words does not support the requested feature at the moment. However, we have logged this feature request as WORDSNET-5101 in our issue tracking system. You will be notified via this forum thread once this feature is available. Once this feature is available, you do not need to use Aspose.PDF.

We apologize for your inconvenience.

Hi tahir.manzoor,

That’s very good news.

I don’t suppose you would be able to suggest when Aspose might get time to add that enhancement to Aspose.Words?

Thanks for your positive response.


We will inform you via this forum thread once this feature is available in Aspose.Words. We apologize for your inconvenience.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-5101) have been fixed in this Aspose.Words for .NET 22.3 update also available on NuGet.
