If you intend to use an SSL Certificate for your website, in order to protect the payment and login data which users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info about the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, for instance the exact website address for the site, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a vendor, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the submitted details and depending on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a unique private key that's generated together with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// rather than the usual http:// and the info submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
