In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login data which users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique 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:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
