In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login information which users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and based on it, gives 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 website which has an SSL installed can be opened 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.
