Privacy Enhanced Mail (PEM) is a format with goal to embed binary content into a content typed 7bits ASCII format.

it looks like a HEADER line a binary content encoded in base64 cut by lines and a TAIL.

content itself is often DER encoded. Then PEM is an additionnal layer to easy cut and paste in mails/texts of binary content.
