If you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your website, to protect the payment and login information which users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
