Yes; this is what the developer's reference says also. Someone
mindful of French law oughta correct me if that is incorrect. The
developers-reference (which will have to be updated again when gpg
becomes more mainstream and pgp is officially deprecated) says:
If you live in a country where use of cryptography even for
authentication is forbidden then please contact us so we can make
special arrangements. This does not apply in France, where I believe
only encryption and not authentication is forbidden.
