In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your website, so as to protect the payment and login info which users send, 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 website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is 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 will be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
