If you offer products and services on your website and you'd like the payment info that users upload to be secure, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the information exchanged between a user and a web server, but to obtain an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL supplier will use to create the certificate. The CSR contains the web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the entity which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and approves the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate which is signed digitally with its private key as an authority. In order to set up an SSL, you'll need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made after you generate your Request, the actual certificate plus a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for every single vendor.
