If you offer products and services on your website and you would like the payment info that customers send to be protected, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to acquire an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR consists of the website address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the entity that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate that is signed in an electronic format with its private key as an authority. To install an SSL, you need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created after you generate the Request, the actual certificate and a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for each and every vendor.
