CategoryEncoded Files
File Format Description

Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) file containing a digitally signed message; may store plain-text written information, as well as binary information encoded as text; also includes a key as clear-signed text, which can be verified using PGP authentication methods; commonly used for posting online security notices as well as securely transmitting messages via email.

Since ASC files can contain textual representations of binary information, they may be larger in size than the original pre-encoded file. However, this tradeoff is usually worth the overhead for verifying the source and content of transmitted information.
