In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your site, in order to protect the payment and login info which users submit, you'll 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 site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted details and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
