In case you offer services and products on your website and you would like the payment data that clients send to be risk-free, you need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a web server, but to obtain an SSL, you need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL supplier will use to create the certificate. The CSR features your web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the entity which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and authorizes the CSR before it gives an SSL certificate which is signed electronically using its private key as an authority. To install an SSL, you'll need a total of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created once you generate the Request, the actual certificate along with a special Certificate Authority code, that is unique for every single vendor.
