In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, so as to protect the payment and login information which users submit, you'll 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, for instance 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 info 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 alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.
