In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login data which users send, 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 encoded form, for example the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted details and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
