If you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, in order to protect the payment and login data that users submit, you will 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 encoded form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted details and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which 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 via an Internet browser.
