I'm not sure what you are asking. Are you trying to do PGP with TLS? 

If you are just trying to encrypt a file, why not just use GPGME:
It is a library that talks to the gnupg binary over a special machine 

There are also C++ bindings for GPGME (in the KDE SVN as part of kdepimlibs, 
not sure what the release state is - may not be a separate release)

If you are using Qt, then QCA has PGP support (also using the gnupg binary).

I guess there are commercial options too. No experience with those.
