In case you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, so as to protect the payment and login data which users send, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
