If you offer services and goods on your site and you'd like the payment data that customers send to be protected, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the information exchanged between a user and a server, but to obtain an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR consists of the web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and email of the business that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and authorizes the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate that is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. In order to install an SSL, you need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created when you generate your Request, the actual certificate and a special Certificate Authority code, that's unique for each vendor.
