In case you wish to use an SSL Certificate for your website, so as to protect the payment and login data which users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data 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 together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site 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 via an Internet browser.
