In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, so as to protect the payment and login info which users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It should be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
