I�m getting a byte array that is generated using a pdf generator library.
When I try to instanciate a PdfReader from this byte array, � java.io.IOException: Encrypted files are not supported � is thrown
When the same byte is viewed in Adobe Acrobat Reader (after having been sent to the browser with the according MIME type) and then saved physically, the file can be opened as argument to instanciate the pdfReader.
Looks like my byte array is recognized as an encrypted pdf.
The byte array is generated from a separate library from HTML.
What I don't get is why iText can open the file that has been created from the Byte array, but not the byte array itself.
Any hint ?
Thanks in advance

I did not realize that the pdf generation process explicitely encrypted the file. All we had to do was to proceed to encryption later in the process.
