File Properties - Security

You are editing the security properties of a file that is compiled in a publication with HTML Executable.

This tab is important because it provides you with several security features for your HTML pages. You can for example restrict what end users can do: copy text, print page, etc… You may assign passwords, exclude the file from being indexed by the search engine, etc…

Security profiles may be assigned to PDF documents (only used if the built-in PDF viewer is activated) and even Flash SWF files too if you want to control whether they can be accessed or not (useful for Flash-based presentations to control which slides may be accessed or not).

About security profiles

HTML Executable uses a system based on “security profiles” to manage the different actions allowed for HTML pages and PDF documents.

Security profiles determine if a page can be accessed (given some conditions like password, restricted publication, script function result…) and what end users can do when viewing this page (usual actions like copying text, printing page, copying images, etc…).

See this sample about how to use a security profile to password protect pages

These security profiles are managed by you in the Security tab: you first create one or more security profiles (in addition to the default one always created when a new project is started). Then you use the File Properties to assign your security profiles to different HTML pages, PDF documents or Flash files.

Selected Security Profile

To assign a security profile to the selected HTML page(s), PDF file(s) or Flash file(s), use the list to choose the one you wish. By default, the “Default” security profile is always selected.

Search engine properties

The search engine by default automatically indexes all HTML pages and PDF documents when the publication is being compiled. You can prevent the selected HTML page(s) or PDF file(s) from being indexed too by turning the option named “Exclude this file from searching” on. In this case, the document(s) will be ignored.
