File Type and Mimetype for .ENC

.ENC file type

File types used by ArtistScope security applications include a new type known as .ENC, which opens in CopySafe PDF Reader.

The .ENC file type is created by CopySafe PDF Protector when encrypting Adobe PDF files. It is a library file for viewing with CopySafe PDF Reader, which may also be referred to as the CS-PDF Reader.

Another type of output from CopySafe PDF Protector is .exe, which runs as an embedded viewer that includes a compact version of the CopySafe PDF Reader.

.ENC files are most useful when publishing a series of CopySafe-protected PDFs because they do not include the reader, which reduces the file size by 2 MB.

Server Mime Type

To deliver .ENC files from a server, you may need to add ENC to the server's Mimetypes:

.enc     application/octet-stream
