We currently we do NOT support printing, redacting and building of password protected document as in the link below

Password-protected PDF documents can be opened and viewed when the viewer is configured to render PDF documents on the client: A dialog prompt will appear allowing for the password to be input. The viewing of password-protected PDF documents is not supported in PageN mode. A password dialog prompt is open for each page that uses a 

password protected PDF. If there is more than one page that uses a password-protected PDF document, there is no way to determine which document's password the viewer is asking for. The printing, redacting, and document-building of password-protected PDF documents are not supported.
