If you would like to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login info that users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information for the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, such as the exact web address for the site, 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 SSL set up 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. A site which has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
