In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your website, so as to protect the payment and login information that users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted info and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
