If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, in order to protect the payment and login data which users send, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.
