If you offer services and goods on your site and you'd like the payment info that users upload to be protected, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a web server, but to receive an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL supplier will use to issue the certificate. The CSR features the website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and e-mail of the organization that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and approves the CSR before it provides an SSL certificate which is signed digitally with its private key as an authority. To be able to set up an SSL, you'll need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made once you generate the Request, the actual certificate plus a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for each vendor.
