Does a high security level slow down site, increase TTFB?

Does having a high security level slow down a website , increase TTFB or otherwise?

Because more checks are made with a high security level - does this slow down server connection and round trip completion ?

Not in any meaningful way; maybe a few hundred nanoseconds, but there’s no noticeable difference between ‘essentially off’ and ‘high’.

Oh that’s good - my server connection time is 1 seconds , probably because i’m on shared , but dedicated costs $500USD+ per month (SAAS so must pay their DEDI prices). Hmm!
