In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your website, so as to protect the payment and login data which users post, 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 encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
