If you offer services and goods on your website and you would like the payment data that people upload to be protected, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the info exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to obtain 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 features your web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the business that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes the CSR before it supplies an SSL certificate which is signed electronically using its private key as an authority. To be able to install an SSL, you need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made when you generate the Request, the actual certificate as well as a special Certificate Authority code, that is unique for each vendor.
