In an SSL session, a secure connection is set up by a series of steps called the SSL handshake:

If the handshake is successful you will have an encrypted connection. If the handshake fails your connection will NOT be encrypted - however, you should receive notification that the connection is not secure (usually a large, impossible-tp-ignore warning).
