If you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login data which users post, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details 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 which is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be accessed 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.
