In case you offer products and services on your website and you'd like the payment data that users submit to be protected, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encodes the info exchanged between a user and a server, but to obtain an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL vendor will use to create the certificate. The CSR contains your website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the organization which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate that is signed in an electronic format using its private key as an authority. In order to set up an SSL, you will need an overall of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made once you generate the Request, the actual certificate along with a special Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each vendor.
