If you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login information that users submit, 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 encoded form, for example the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique 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 information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
