If you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as 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 encoded form, such as the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four 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 website that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
