If you need to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login information that users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to 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 email address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated along 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 info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
