If you offer services and products on your site and you'd like the payment data that clients submit to be secure, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to acquire 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 includes the web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the business which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes the CSR before it issues 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 four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created when you generate the Request, the actual certificate plus a special Certificate Authority code, that's unique for every single vendor.
