PDF/A-1 vs PDF/A-2• Embedded PDF/A Files via Collections: Acrobat allows users to create collections where multiple PDF/A documents are combined into one “container PDF“ document. PDF/A collections can also benefit security applications where a signature can be applied to individual single pages. The PDF/A collection then combines the signed single page. Individual pages can subsequently be removed without affecting the validity of the signatures of the remaining pages.• Where PDF/A-1 is based on PDF version 1.4, PDF/A-2 takes advantage of features that only became available in later versions of PDF, up to and including PDF version 1.7. But most importantly, PDF/A-2 is no longer based on a particular Adobe PDF version, but instead, is now based on an ISO standard 32000-1.
A PDF file consists primarily ofobjects:• Objects:• Boolean values, representing true or false• Numbers• Strings• Names• Arrays, ordered collections of objects• Dictionaries, collections of objects indexed by Names• Streams, usually containing large amounts of data
