In case you offer services and products on your website and you would like the payment info that users submit to be secure, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to acquire an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR includes the website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the business which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate which is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. In order to set up an SSL, you'll need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate your Request, the actual certificate as well as a specific Certificate Authority code, that's unique for each vendor.
