If you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login data that users post, 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 encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
