PdfFileSignature performance is very bad

Given is the following code where we want to check a signature in a pdf document.

            var pdfSign = new Aspose.Pdf.Facades.PdfFileSignature();
            if (pdfSign.ContainsSignature())
                var signed = pdfSign.VerifySigned("Signature1");
                var valid = pdfSign.VerifySignature("Signature1");

For a simple pdf document with one signature, this takes up to 60 seconds, and uses quite some cpu.

What is the reason for this long time it takes to validate a simple signature?
