If you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login data which users post, 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 encoded form, for example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
