If you offer products and services on your website and you'd like the payment information that customers send to be secure, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encodes the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to obtain an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL vendor will use to issue the certificate. The CSR contains your website address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the business that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it supplies an SSL certificate that is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. In order to set up an SSL, you will need an overall of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made after you generate the Request, the actual certificate along with a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for every single vendor.
