If you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, in order to protect the payment and login data that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and depending 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 along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
