If you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login information that users upload, 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, for instance the exact web address for the website, 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 data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
