If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login info which users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
