I have have pdf files uploaded as attachments in Salesforce.

Is there any a way (an app on App Exchange) that would allow me to parse contents of pdf files, preferably as xml or json. The files contain only text and small logos.

I don't want to use external webservices to do this because the data is confidential.

I think your best bet is to use javascript. You can use PDF.js javascript library to parse PDF and get its content.
