Suppress the warning about unsafe file and home directory
(--homedir) permissions. Note that the permission checks that
GnuPG performs are not intended to be authorita- tive, but rather
they simply warn about certain common permission problems. Do
not assume that the lack of a warning means that your system is
Note that the warning for unsafe --homedir permissions cannot be
supressed in the gpg.conf file, as this would allow an attacker
to place an unsafe gpg.conf file in place, and use this file to
supress warnings about itself. The --homedir permissions warning
may only be supressed on the command line.
