- Encryption for Powerpoint?

Caveat: I have no idea how this cool stuff works.
I have MS Powerpoint presentations I want to have someone show for me
in my absence. However, I'm not willing to share!
I can convert the PP into a .exe file, so my specific needs are:
1. Seperate user and administrator passwords
2. User password is only good for 1-2 file showings
3. File becomes unusable after a set amount of time.
Re: Encryption for Powerpoint?
What you want isn't encryption so much as digital rights management
(DRM). The same stuff the friggin RIAA is so fond of.
And Office newsgroup would probably have more info perhaps.
Security wise, if they can show it once, they can capture the info if
they're interested enough (screen grabs, or vmware movies of the
session would be the final things you couldn't avoid), so you're
really limited to making it inconvenient for them to borrow the
I'd make a copyright statement visible on every slide, make the .exe
file, clap my hands together with a calculated risk for letting
someone other than you show the slides vs the possibility someone will
"steal" them, and move on with life.
