If you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login info which users send, 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 instance the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be loaded 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.
