If you offer goods and services on your website and you would like the payment info that customers submit to be secure, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the info exchanged between a user and a server, but to get an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL service provider will use to create the certificate. The CSR contains the web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the business that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and authorizes the CSR before it gives 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'll need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created after you generate the Request, the actual certificate and a special Certificate Authority code, that is unique for every single vendor.
