In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login info which users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided information and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.
