If you need to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login information that users send, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided information and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated along 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.
