If you need to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login data which users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted info and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated together 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 information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
