In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your website, so as to protect the payment and login information which users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted info and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
