If you offer products and services on your website and you'd like the payment information that customers submit to be protected, you will need an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol that encrypts the information exchanged between a user and a server, but to acquire an SSL, you will need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded info that the SSL service provider will use to create the certificate. The CSR includes the web address, Business name and Unit, mailing address and email of the organization that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority evaluates and authorizes the CSR before it issues an SSL certificate which is signed in an electronic format with its private key as an authority. In order to install an SSL, you'll need a total of four batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is made after you generate your Request, the actual certificate as well as a specific Certificate Authority code, that is unique for each vendor.
