If you offer products and services on your website and you would like the payment data that users upload to be risk-free, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encodes the information exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to acquire an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL vendor will use to create the certificate. The CSR consists of the website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the organization which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate which is signed electronically with its private key as an authority. To be able to install an SSL, you'll need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made when you generate your Request, the actual certificate along with a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each vendor.
