Do i need to add cryptolographic to the kernel?


I am busy compiling the kernel and have reached a section called cryptographic support and i noticed that they are all checked as not needed in the kernel (also not much help is associated with each item)
so i was wondering , do i need to add any of this to the kernel or not ?

BTW : they cannot be added as modules.

Thanx for the help

Only if you want to setup a encrypted filesystem, to things such as bank records, love letters and other personal stuff, that you don't want to have anyone loking at. Personly I recorment you install all posible encryption methods.
