If you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, so as to protect the payment and login info which users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded 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 vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted data and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website which 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 via an Internet browser.
