In case you offer services and goods on your website and you'd like the payment info that customers submit to be protected, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to receive an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL supplier will use to issue the certificate. The CSR consists of the website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the organization which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates 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 install an SSL, you will need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate your Request, the actual certificate and a special Certificate Authority code, which is unique for each and every vendor.
