In case you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login information which users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted info and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four 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 opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
