> Hi,
> We have identified that the `HandshakeContext` initialization takes up a close to 50% of the flame graph for startHandshake. I have moved the computation of the `activeProtocols` and `activeCipherSuites` from the HandshakeContext constructor to SSLConfiguration class because the values used to compute the two list are available in the SSLConfiguration. 
> In order to reuse this, I have initialized SSLConfiguration in the SSLSocketFactory and reused this when possible for Client Socket Constructors in the SSLSocketImpl. 
> Sockets created from the SSLSocketFactory see this improvements. 
> Old Benchmarks

> We have been able to optimize the `TransportContext.kickstart` function by removing the `HandshakeContext.<init>`  initialization and reduce the time to start the handshake by reusing `activeProtocols` and `activeCipherSuites`
> In addition to the SSL and http tests, I have run tier-1 and tier-2 tests and ensure that they pass.
