Can I Apply For Provisional Patent With Password Protected PDF Or?

When you file for a US patent, it is a patent application. You get a filing receipt from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. You later get foreign filing license as long as the subject of the invention may be shared through foreign filing channels, e.g. The patent cooperation treaty (PCT). These would be followed by office actions from the patent office which explain why you are not entitled to a patent (believe it or not, this is desirable, but the reasoning would be the subject of another post). Ultimately, you get a notice of allowance. While all of these are all official communications, none of them are certificates. When the patent is ultimately issued, you will receive a ribbon copy of your patent. The ribbon copy is the official, published copy of the patent and it comes with the USPTO seal. Still no certificate though. There are plenty of third party companies that will send you letters asking whether you want a plaque or certificate to commemorate your achievement, but again, this will not come from the government.

I am not sure that you can patent a process that you don't understand. This is not to say.
