In case you need to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login information that users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted info and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that 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 through a web browser.
