Introduction of PDF security

There are mainly two types of PDF password. 'Open Password' is the strongest, if you choose a long length and random characters, it's not likely to be cracked. 'Owner password' is a weak protection, which prevents someone from copying, editing or printing, but it may bypass by some PDF software.
