If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login information that users send, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four 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 site that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
