Are Personal Security Tokens affected by the need to renew a self-signed security certificate ?

I have a number of scripts that use the Developerforce php toolkit and connect to SF by a personal  security token for a user whose password never expires. Here is a code example:
 
define("USERNAME", "xxxxxx@yyyyy.it");
define("PASSWORD", "***********");

define("SECURITY_TOKEN", "abcdefghijklmnopqrs");

require_once ('soapclient/SforceEnterpriseClient.php');
$mySforceConnection = new SforceEnterpriseClient();
$mySforceConnection->createConnection("soapclient/enterprise.wsdl.xml");
$mySforceConnection->login(USERNAME, PASSWORD.SECURITY_TOKEN);
I don't believe that code such as above relates to any self-signed certication and therefore I do not need to take any action to renew the certificate or obtain a new security token.   But I would like confirmation on this as a number of important scripts will stop working at the the certicate expiry date if I am wrong !  I raised an SF case on this but received no definitive answer, they recommended a Forum post.   Thanks.
