If you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login information that users send, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
