I've read this:

"From iText version 2.0.3 and iTextSharp 4.0.4 the password restrictions are enforced by the library instead of passing that responsability to the developer. Using PdfStamper or importing pages in PdfStamper, PdfCopy and PdfWriter will throw an exception if the PDF was not opened with the owner password.

So with newer versions of iText is not possible any more to fill an acro form with password restrictions (without knowing the password, obviously).
Am i right or is there some workaround in order to fill password-protected forms?
Thanks in advance,
Agostino

Re: filling protected PdfForms
We had a discussion with some Adobe people about this.
The result was that we made the policy stricter.
There is no workaround.
