You may invoke gnupg like this:
gpg --output szstt.asd ... mySecrets.txt
It's up to you, what file name you choose for the option --output.
While I understand the need for file names other than
mySecrets.gpg I think "application-IBM_2010-11-11.txt" looks way
less suspicious than szstt.asd. That said both don't provide
protection against closer looks.
