In case you offer services and products on your website and you'd like the payment details that users upload to be protected, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a server, but 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 consists of the website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the organization that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and authorizes the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate which is signed in an electronic format using its private key as an authority. To set up an SSL, you need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created after you generate the Request, the actual certificate plus a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for each and every vendor.
