I am completely with Andreas here.
QGIS is able to produce PDF. That should be enough. I will not repeat
the arguments brought by Andreas but rather found another piece that
fits here:


So if it is really necessary to create password protected PDF please
use any specific PDF tool for that.
I too don't see password protection as a "main" function in a GIS program.
I'd rather promote openness to users that do not share this view than
support their laziness to open a dedicated programm for that.
