https SSL Certificate Expired

The Certificate issued to the user
(when he/she connects to my https server on port 443)
is expired. I will be renewing this Certificate.

In the meantime, I was wondering:

a. Is the session still Secured with (128 bit) SSL?

b. Does the expired Certificate compromise the security in any way?

Yes, if the user decides to accept the certificate in spite of their browser's warning. If they do not accep the certificate, the session will not continue. So the security of the connection is not compromised.

No, its just a "nuisance" thing that the broser complains about. I say "nuisance," but I also realize why they complain (but that would open up another whole can of worms.
