In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, in order to protect the payment and login information which users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance 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 posted details and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
