IMHO that's overkill, but you could always do it just for fun ;-)

Having sane passwords, preferably only using keys, a minimal amount of
services available to the outside world, making regular backups and
being quick with security updates is much more important.

If you do want something to keep track of the integrity of your files, I
think the package integrit would be easier to set up and use.
