If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login information which users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided information and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
