Subject Re: Anyone know how to set up a bouncycastle?
Date Thu, 24 Sep 2015 15:43:17 GMT
Some files are encrypted with the empty user password (but not empty 
owner password), that is why you can open them. In Adobe Reader, you 
will see "(PROTECTED)" in the title bar. (or something similar in 
another language)

My understanding is that this is the call that doesn't work:

     Security.addProvider(new BouncyCastleProvider());

1) change your code so that this piece of code is at the start of your 
2) Does it work? I assume it won't.
3) prepare a minimal webstart application, i.e. just with bouncycastle
4) Assuming it still doesn't work, ask your question on stackoverflow. 
Don't forget to add webstart and bouncycastle as labels, and include all 
relevant files. You will probably be more successful there.
