password security in the document

I have noticed that if password security is enabled in the pdf then even if there is metadata embedded neither the indexer and nor pdfpropertyextension would list it. Is anything I can do about that? Thank you.

If a password is set, most of the times metadata is encrypted too so there's no way for an external parser to extract its content.

Does Adobe Reader show that data (without entering a password)?
Could you post a sample file here?

Is the metadata visible if you open it with Adobe Reader (with no password given)?

Could you please send me a sample protected file with unprotected metadata (the smallest the better)?

Thanks for your sample file.

I've just released version 1.8.0.
It can read encrypted PDF files with unencrypted metadata.

Please report any issue here...
