In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, in order to protect the payment and login data which users send, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded 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 submitted info and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
