This question is perhaps only for German users of GnuPG. In the past
German banks and credit institutes prohibited the storing of PIN numbers
etc. on personal computer systems, even claiming that in the case of storing
they would not have been responsible anymore for the abuse of stolen
credit cards.

What is the current situation about this issue in the German law if such
PIN numbers are stored ciphered with GnuPG?
