PEM file extension - Privacy Enhanced Mail security certificate file
What is pem file? How to open pem files?
The pem file extension is related to Privacy Enhanced Mail security certificates.
PEM is the outgrowth of work by the Privacy and Security Research Group (PSRG) of the IRTF. At the heart of PEM is a set of procedures for transforming RFC 822 messages in such a fashion as to provide integrity, data origin authenticity, and, optionally, confidentiality.
PEM may be employed with either symmetric or asymmetric cryptographic key distribution mechanisms. Because the asymmetric (public-key) mechanisms are better suited to the large scale, heterogeneously administered environment characteristic of the Internet, to date only those mechanisms have been standardized.
The standard form adopted by PEM is largely a profile of the CCITT X.509 (Directory Authentication Framework) recommendation.
