In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your website, in order to protect the payment and login data that users send, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 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:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
