If you need to use an SSL Certificate for your site, in order to protect the payment and login data which users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It should 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 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet 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 through a web browser.
