Description

On this page, Understanding Transparent Data Encryption, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb934049.aspx, there is no mention of expired certificates. This should be clarified to ensure people understand that the certificate used for TDE does not matter.

Fixed by adding the following to the first note: A certificate that has exceeded its expiration date can still be used to encrypt and decrypt data with TDE.
It may take a while before you see this in the publicly posted documents. But thanks.

I agree. I'll get to that soon. Thank you for suggesting this.
