Improved Security & Automation

Adobe Reader protected mode security (sandboxing)

Prevents malicious code embedded within PDF files from
executing

All PDF processing such as PDF and image parsing, JavaScript
execution, font rendering, and 3D rendering happens in the
sandbox.

Processes that need to perform some action outside the sandbox
boundary must do so through a trusted proxy called a “broker
process.”

The sandbox creates a new distinction of two security principals

User principal : the context in which the user’s logon session runs

PDF principal: the isolated process that parses and renders the PDF.
This distinction is established by a trust boundary at the process level
between the sandbox process and the rest of the user’s logon session
and the operating system.

Improved enterprise deployment automation
Sandboxing

Built on the
same principals
as Google
Chrome and MS
Office
Sandboxing – what’s not protected

Unauthorized read access to the file system or registry.
