If you offer services and products on your site and you'd like the payment information that users submit to be risk-free, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a web server, but to receive an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL vendor will use to issue the certificate. The CSR consists of your website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the entity which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and authorizes the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate which is signed digitally with its private key as an authority. To be able to install an SSL, you need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created when you generate the Request, the actual certificate as well as a special Certificate Authority code, that's unique for each vendor.
