How would one encrypt with AES? :-?

7z supports AES-256 on all platforms.


But then they have access to the document in clear. They would extract
it, then forward it in clear to whatever department or agency requests
it, on clear email.

I saw your comment and I agree. It seems that the latest PDF versions support
AES, so encrypted PDFs look like a good solution ... just don't forget to also
disable "printing allowed" etc. or they will print and rescan.

Or make a photo with a mobile phone while cursing you and all your descendants
for the trouble which you're causing :-)
