Adding new ciphers to linux , can it be done?

I don't know if this is a stupid question to be asking, I'm a new to Linux but I am trying to do a comparison between some ciphers aes rc4 blowfish but I need some new ciphers as well , is there a way to add or install them into Linux. I'm using backtrack 5 encase that might be important.
