In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your site, to protect the payment and login data that users upload, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, or CSR. The Request contains all the information about the entity that will use the SSL in an encrypted form, for instance the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It has to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted information and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that is generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site that has an SSL installed can be loaded with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through an Internet browser.
