In case you intend to use an SSL Certificate on your site, to protect the payment and login information that users upload, you'll 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 has to be sent to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the posted data and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key which 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 can be viewed in standard text format from an Internet browser.
