We are having an issue when we call Save on PdfDocument due to the fact that we have Windows Platform FIPS enabled.

FIPS is complaining because the Save calls down into SyncFusion.Pdf.Security.PdfEncryptor which seems to use MD5CryptoServiceProvider which is not supported under FIPS.

Is there a way to change the provider that is used or to disable the security/encryption entirely (so that it doesn't call down into this section)?
