This evening while perusing Hacker News I came upon a post with the title 5 easy tips to accelerate SSL. An interesting read, but I don't use Apache or Nginx and am instead interested in similar tips for IIS. Cursory Googling didn't turn up anything of note (doesn't mean I missed something). Are there similar "easy" tips for speeding up the way IIS handles SSL?
