If you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, so as to protect the payment and login data which users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that 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 should be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted info and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
