Document Protection

You can protect your PDF document, with the setProtection method:

$html2pdf->pdf->SetProtection($permissions, $userPass, $ownerPass, $mode, $pubkeys);

The parameters are:

Parameter Default Description
$permissions the set of permissions (specify the ones you want to block):
  • print : Print the document;
  • modify : Modify the contents of the document by operations other than those controlled by 'fill-forms', 'extract' and 'assemble';
  • copy : Copy or otherwise extract text and graphics from the document;
  • annot-forms : Add or modify text annotations, fill in interactive form fields, and, if 'modify' is also set, create or modify interactive form fields (including signature fields);
  • fill-forms : Fill in existing interactive form fields (including signature fields), even if 'annot-forms' is not specified;
  • extract : Extract text and graphics (in support of accessibility to users with disabilities or for other purposes);
  • assemble : Assemble the document (insert, rotate, or delete pages and create bookmarks or thumbnail images), even if 'modify' is not set;
  • print-high : Print the document to a representation from which a faithful digital copy of the PDF content could be generated. When this is not set, printing is limited to a low-level representation of the appearance, possibly of degraded quality.
  • owner : (inverted logic - only for public-key) when set permits change of encryption and enables all other permissions.
$userPass user password. Empty by default.
$ownerPass null owner password. If not specified, a random value is used.
$mode 0 encryption strength: 0 = RC4 40 bit; 1 = RC4 128 bit; 2 = AES 128 bit; 3 = AES 256 bit.
$pubkeys null array of recipients containing public-key certificates ('c') and permissions ('p'). For example: array(array('c' => 'file://../examples/data/cert/tcpdf.crt', 'p' => array('print')))
