If you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login information which users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
