In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login information which users post, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be opened 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.
