Yet Another PDF question. How to prevent users from changing the PDF data.

I know this much --->| |<--- about PDFs. Learned just enough of Adobe LiveCycle to create a template that works. There's different security settings, and there's something about PDF/A vs AcroForms vs AEM or XFA forms. Insert "head spinning/eyes crossed" emoji.

I've created a PDF template using LiveCycle and we're using that in a PDF widget. This works -- the widget fills out the PDF fields and the user can view, print or download the PDF using whatever browser plug-in they've got.

What we need to do is prevent the user from modifying the data on the PDF in the SBM PDF Widget and in the downloaded PDF. Of course, the SBM PDF Widget still needs to be able to fill out the PDF template. So this is like "PDF is read-only if you're a human". Anyone have any ideas on this?
