If you wish to use an SSL Certificate for your website, in order to protect the payment and login information which users send, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted info and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which 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 from an Internet browser.
