If you offer goods and services on your site and you would like the payment info that clients submit to be risk-free, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the data exchanged between a user and a server, but in order to obtain an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL vendor will use to issue the certificate. The CSR features your web 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 supplies an SSL certificate that 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 created once you generate the Request, the actual certificate and a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for every single vendor.
