Anything fewer than about a hundred would strike me as needlessly limiting.

Extracting the modulus and exponent from a key and then iterating the cert:modulus and cert:exponent triples in the profile and comparing them shouldn’t really be a slow operation (not to the point of ~30 keys timing out) — how are you going about it?
