For this usecase I'm using AgentForwarding (
AgentForwarding ). The GnuPG on the remote machine connects to a local Gpg-
Agent. This allows me to SSH to a remote machine, do crypto there with secret 
keys that live on my local machine / security tokens. And I only need to enter 
the passphrase on the local machine.
