After looking for the usage of --passphrase-fd (can't use your above
example, as stdin is the input channel) I have seen that there is an option
"--passphrase", where I can give the passphrase on commandline. Seems the

Passphrase on the command line has the disadvantage that anybody
who does a 'ps -edaf' can see it. Feeding it via some file
descriptor is much safer.
