In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login data that users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information 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 e-mail address. It should be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated along 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 info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
