In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, so as to protect the payment and login data that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be accessed 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.
