Deploying 4096-bit HTTPS on the Raspberry Pi 2 was a bad idea
Who would have thought, right? :-)
After installing my certificate from Let’s Encrypt last week I was immediately confronted with the fact that I had made the wrong choice in regard to key sizes. By using a 4096-bit private key I was relying too heavily on the RPi2’s CPU. This became abundantly clear as page load times were increased by 500 – 1000ms.
