In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your site, so as to protect the payment and login data that users send, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted details and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be opened 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.
