If you wish to use an SSL Certificate for your site, in order to protect the payment and login information that users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format from a web browser.
