.ACROBATSECURITYSETTINGS is Adobe Acrobat Security Settings File

File created by Adobe Acrobat, a program used for creating and viewing .PDF files; contains security properties used for creating PDFs, such as access restrictions; must be digitally signed to verify the identity of the security settings issuer.
