SSL connection establishment time

Hi Thiyagarajan,

it depends on network bandwith available and load on network but usually it is very fast can open within 1 second. It also depends on the content of the page.  If the page is heavy or has more data it may take few seconds as well.

So in short it is not the SSL handshake which takes time but the page content.

for example:

https://www.google.co.in/ ( this takes almost 1 second )

You can refer following link which explains SSL handshake.
