I was trying to read a QR Code from some encrypted PDFs in a Spring/Java project with the approach:

  • Extract pdf to png (with PDFBox)
  • Read the QR with Zxing/QrReader

But it seems that PDFBox cannot open an encrypted pdf. What software package can?

Suggestions for other programming languages are welcome too.
