If you offer services and goods on your site and you would like the payment info that clients upload to be risk-free, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to obtain an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL supplier will use to issue the certificate. The CSR contains your web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the entity that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and approves the CSR before it issues 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 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created when you generate your Request, the actual certificate and a specific Certificate Authority code, that's unique for each vendor.
