In case you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login data which users upload, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for example the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which 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 via a web browser.
