If you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your site, so as to protect the payment and login info that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
