If you offer services and goods on your site and you'd like the payment information that users upload to be protected, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to acquire an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL supplier will use to issue the certificate. The CSR consists of your website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the organization which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and authorizes the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate which is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. In order to install an SSL, you'll need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created when you generate the Request, the actual certificate plus a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for every single vendor.
