If you need to use an SSL Certificate for your website, in order to protect the payment and login info that users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
