If you wish to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login info 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, for example the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
