In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login data which users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the info related to the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be sent to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided data and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL set up requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key which is generated alongside the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which 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 via an Internet browser.
