There is no way you can enforce this. In order to have the
PDF shown on the client, the content has to be transferred
to the client, and there is no way you can prevent the user
from saving it into a file, unless you already have
extensive control over the user's  browser.

This probably meant that you can prevent the user from changing
the PDF content. This functionality is provided by FOP now, see
