If you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your website, so as to protect the payment and login data that users send, 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 website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided information and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site 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.
