my boss wants to share a pdf to another person, he will send the pdf file on a USB drive; my boss told me that he wants me to protect that file in order that his friend will be able to Print the PDF content but he can not save a copy on his computer...

how can i do that?

You cannot stop someone who can read a pdf from keeping a copy. You password protect, you can use preshared keys so only he can open it...etc etc. But if you give someone access, they have access. Thats a one way door.

If you can view/read, you can copy.  I don't see anyway around you can protect it.

Kingston has secure USB flash drives with encryption to protect your data.  However, if you allow someone to read it, that is another story.
