What is an ASEC file?

An ASEC file is a secure application introduced with Froyo, the version 2.2 release of the Android mobile operating system. It stores mobile application data using proprietary encryption and is saved to the .android_secure folder of a device's SD card. ASEC files can be run with the Android SDK emulator.
