In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login data that users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided information and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
