It would seem like a fairly trivial thing to code, just have whatever
is writing the file pipe it to GNUPG with the appropriate settings and
write output of gpg to disk. I don't think there if a front end that
does it for you though, some custom code seems unavoidable but
depending on your precise usecase and language it might just be a line
or two.
