A password-protected PDF is not a matter of Reports Builder. You'll need a tool which will create such a file; one of them is Right PDF printer.

However, it means that you will not be able to directly create a PDF, but virtually "print" it through such a software. Of course, it means that it is YOU who has to create a PDF file and user will only open this PDF file.

Why wouldn't you rather establish Oracle security and either allow users to view information or not? Create an Oracle user and grant him/her desired privileges. Doing so, this user will either see data or not.
