If you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login info that users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact web address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided info and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which 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.
