In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login information which users post, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
