If you offer products and services on your site and you'd like the payment details that people upload to be secure, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encodes the data exchanged between a user and a server, but to receive an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR consists of the web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and e-mail of the organization which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority studies and authorizes the CSR before it provides an SSL certificate that is signed electronically using its private key as an authority. To set up an SSL, you will need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created when you generate your Request, the actual certificate as well as a specific Certificate Authority code, that's unique for every single vendor.
