In case you offer goods and services on your website and you'd like the payment data that clients submit to be secure, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to acquire 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 includes the website address, Business name and Unit, mailing 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 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 specific Certificate Authority code, that's unique for every single vendor.
