If you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login data that users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided information and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
