In OpenPGP this is called a "keyblock". The term certificate is used
only for some special thinks (revocation certificate). Certificate also
has the bad connotation that a third party issues this; which is not the
case for common OpenPGP use cases
An OpenPGP keyblock is very different from an X.509 certificate.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
