Numeric formats with FPE algorithm

For a scheme with Numeric format type and FPE algorithm, the numeric data on the calls to /protect and /unprotect must be a string.

To preserve the format and length, the encrypted output must also be stored as a string.

Example: Encrypting a number via FPE like 123456 might result in output like 027931.
