In case you offer services and products on your site and you would like the payment information that people upload to be risk-free, you'll need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but in order to get an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded data that the SSL vendor will use to create the certificate. The CSR consists of the web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the business which will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate that is signed digitally using its private key as an authority. In order to set up an SSL, you'll need a total of four 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's unique for each vendor.
