If you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login data that users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
