In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login info that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
