In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login info that 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 web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
