If you offer services and products on your website and you'd like the payment details that people send to be protected, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but to acquire an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL supplier will use to create the certificate. The CSR contains the web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the organization that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate which is signed electronically with 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 special Certificate Authority code, that is unique for each vendor.
