IE plug-in enables secure-document viewing

Microsoft has released an add-on for Internet Explorer that enables the Web browser to view secure documents created with the latest version of the company's Office productivity software. As previously reported, Office 2003 includes new security capabilities that enable document authors to restrict access to a file. Companies need to be running Windows Server 2003 and Windows Rights Management Services in order to utilize the features.

The Internet Explorer plug-in, available for download from Microsoft's Web site, will enable those using an older version of Office or a competing productivity application to read secure documents.
