If you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login data that users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted info and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation 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 website that has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
