A way to set up user-based authentication/authorization for View SDK pdf preview for sensitive PDFs?

So I'm currently building a website that uses View SDK to preview PDFs in-line.

Some of these PDFs contain sensitive information though and I've password-protected them at the file level.

This works as expected.  But I've noticed that if I navigate away from the file (load the "adobe-dc-view" div with another PDF) and then return to password-protected file later, I'll be prompted for the password again.  Eg.

I am wondering if there's a way for the Adobe View Previewer to somehow "remember" that credentials have already been provided?  That way, once the user gives the password once, s/he never needs to do so again.

 

Furthermore-- What are my options in the Adobe ecosystem if I'm interested in setting up my website so a user can login once and then view all PDFs that s/he is authorized to view?  In other words-- I don't want to apply password protection at the file-level.  Instead, I want to set up some sort of "sitewide, organization-authentication/authorization" scheme.

 

Can you please point me in the right direciton?  What are my options in the Adobe ecosystem?
