If you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your website, so as to protect the payment and login data which users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as 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 details and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated together 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 information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
