In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login information which users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website 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 posted information and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
