In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your website, in order to protect the payment and login information that users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information related to 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 has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted details and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different 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 accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.
