I think you're actually getting confused here, in fact. Even if it does take 120 seconds, that's *parsing and download* time, *not* signature checking. If it took 2 minutes to check a signature on that size a file, you'd be doing fantastically. So I doubt it is, and that means you're seeing the normal overhead of that file size in the parser and DOM, and that *can't be fixed*. It is what it is. Use TLS instead, you're still going to see the same startup time.

With a huge amount of risky work I have no intention of doing, it would be possible to reduce 10 copies of that overhead to 1, but the minimum overhead would be whatever the single copy takes now.
