In case Google can't crawl your read-protected pdf files, he won't index them ;
alternative could be to install your own search engine script plus a database ;
these two are said to index pdf and docs files, though I'm not sure
how easy it is to do because they need executables.

For little files, not to numerous, other alternative may be to use a
pdf2txt or pdf2html program to mass extract the texts, then associate
every extracted output to every pdf source.
