If you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login information that users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up 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 site that 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.
