In case you need to use an SSL Certificate for your site, 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 info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example 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 submitted data and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that 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 via a web browser.
