If you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your website, in order to protect the payment and login info which users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
