The documents can bear a digital signature and can be viewed with Adobe's free Acrobat Reader. Document Server will run on Windows and Solaris and is priced at for $10,000 per CPU.
Document Server for Reader Extensions embeds and encrypts usage rights within a document that can be decoded by Acrobat Reader version 5.1. It's aimed at government workflows, and Adobe has conducted a pilot with the Internal Revenue Service that lets taxpayers digitally sign tax forms, Adobe senior VP Ivan Koon says. The extensions server starts at $75,000 for use with 10 separate forms.
Adobe hired Koon in August to head its ePaper division, which aims to place Adobe technology inside business and government processes.
