In case you offer goods and services on your site and you would like the payment details that customers submit to be secure, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to get an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL vendor will use to create the certificate. The CSR consists of the web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the entity that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate which is signed digitally with its private key as an authority. To be able to set up an SSL, you will need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made once you generate the Request, the actual certificate and a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for every single vendor.
