In case you'd like to use an SSL Certificate for your site, in order to protect the payment and login data that users submit, you will need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity that will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and e-mail address. It should be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided details and based on it, gives the SSL certificate. The SSL set up requires four bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key that's generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A website that has an SSL installed can be opened with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR will be viewed in standard text format through a web browser.
