Taxman

Well, if you’re in the United States, you’re all too aware of one thing – taxes were due this week. I hope you all survived.  But, I thought I’d use this post to point out where Adobe Reader can lend a helping hand.
In the United States, the revenue collection branch of the United States Treasury is the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Since 1996, the IRS has offered taxpayers Web access to tax return forms and publications in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), a move that yielded impressive results: the agency saves millions of dollars annually by decreasing the money it spends on printing, storing, and mailing tax materials.
Have you ever noticed that you can go directly to www.irs.gov, download a form, fill it out and save it locally using Adobe Reader? If you’re interested in providing this kind of service to your customers, check out: Adobe LiveCycle Reader Extensions ES.  You can even enable digital signatures and collaborative features using this solution.

Stop by and see us to learn about the security capabilities of Adobe Reader, especially around digital signatures for authenticity and integrity and document rights management for confidentiality, authorization and accountability. If you stop by the booth, we’ll even throw in a free Adobe Reader ;-)
Also at RSA, we often get questions around our security practices when building our products. To find out more, just check out Adobe Security Software Engineering.
