If you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, in order to protect the payment and login info that users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided details and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key which is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
