If you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login information which users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information about 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 has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual 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 which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.
