@JL RE umask: you simply need to run the command umask 177 (whether manually or from a script) to make it so that any files created in that shell have 600 perms (i.e., rw-------). You can do this manually, or from a script.

comment debuild -S in cronjob: how to avoid interactive gpg
Ah, I see. I didn't realize you weren't calling gpg directly (not familiar with debuild). A quick google search on debuild & gpg gets some hits, but I don't have more time to look into it right now. Let us know what you figure out!

comment Encrypting and decrypting single file with master password and passphrase
@lori: Hopefully it should be clear to you now. If you're wanting to do gpg symmetric / symmetric+asymmetric often, you might be interested in checking out my gpg frontend. When running it from a terminal, it even prints out what gpg command it used.
