In case you offer services and goods on your website and you would like the payment data that people 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 server, but in order to receive an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL service provider will use to create the certificate. The CSR includes the web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the business that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and approves the CSR before it provides an SSL certificate which is signed electronically using its private key as an authority. To set up an SSL, you'll need an overall of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made when you generate your Request, the actual certificate plus a special Certificate Authority code, that's unique for every single vendor.
