If you offer products and services on your website and you would like the payment information that people send to be protected, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encodes the info exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to get an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL vendor will use to issue the certificate. The CSR includes the website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the entity that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and authorizes the CSR before it supplies an SSL certificate which is signed electronically with its private key as an authority. To be able to set up an SSL, you need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate your Request, the actual certificate and a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for each vendor.
