How do I show Octect Streamed/Flate Coded PDF documents from my database using the Embed API?

Is it possible? Do I have to save the pdf document as a file on my website to get a URL prior to viewing? All documents saved in my database are saved there because of privacy. If I have to save my pdf documents in my file system instead it defeats the purpose of privacy. I can show these files fine using the header tags but I want to use them alongside adobe sign. Which means I would need to show using your Adobe Embed API to use that functionality. Unless Adobe Sign works with the native browser pdf viewer? Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

I understand that I can create generate a URL that users will not likely guess, but if they do end up guessing it correctly that private information will be shown to the 'hacker'. There are scripts out there that do nothing but try to guess URLs for private information. Of course they usually only guess basic names, however with individual SSN numbers on the documents I do not want to leave anything up to chance.
