Libgcrypt is a low-level libarray and protocol neutal.  Armoring a file
is part of a protocol and you need to select what protocol to use and
implement that protocol.

What protocol do you want?  For instance CMS (X.509) and OpenPGP are
widely used signing protocols.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
