If you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login info that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for 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 needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted details and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which 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 via a web browser.
