If you need to use an SSL Certificate on your website, to protect the payment and login information that users post, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity which will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four different bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a specific private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. An Internet site which has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via an Internet browser.
