I'm not an expert, but there are several possible reasons.

Did you sign the jars you are using? Starting with 1.7.0_45 (I hope to remember
the correct version) signing the jars is mandantory. And there are some other
restrictions for the JNLP file itself.

Do you use the pdfbox-app jar? This could be problematic as the repacking of the
jar destroys the signature of the bouncy castle jar, which is needed for a JNLP

The bouncy castle stuff is needed as long as your pdfs are using encrypted data
and according to the stack trace it looks like you do.
