Create a new format ".PDFPK" that is in every other respect a normal PDF document, but encrypted with a public key. Also have Libreoffice generate and manage public key / private key pairs.

Mortgage company generates a key pair and releases public key on their web site. Users can then generate a document and encrypt it with their public key as a .PDFPK .  Then it can be sent via regular EMAIL securely, and the bank is the only entity that can turn it into a regular .PDF .

I don't know if this will be a solution that's quantum hard,

but this may be a chance to make Libreoffice the leading edge, making M$ play catch up.

You can use PGP (or any another) encryption for your PDF files now. Also you can set up a password for open/edit your PDF file
