If you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login info that users send, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It should be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and depending on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
