In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login info which users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
