In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login information that users send, 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 encrypted 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 SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated alongside 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.
