could you recommend a free easy to use tool to perform forensics in a pdf file? Specifically i'd need to find username of the person who created the file, computer name, IP, etc.
Thanks in advance for your help

You should research what information is available in a PDF.
There is information on the forensicswiki that should help including information on some tools.
One tool that is not listed: ExifTool by Phil Harvey works well. Written in platform independent Perl and available as a stand alone tool for Windows and Mac.
