If you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login data that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted info and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
