In case you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login information that users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four 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 opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.
