In case you offer products and services on your website and you'd like the payment data that customers send to be protected, you should use an SSL certificate. Secure Sockets Layer is a protocol which encodes the data exchanged between a user and a web server, but to acquire an SSL, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). This is Base64 encoded information that the SSL service provider will use to issue the certificate. The CSR contains the web address, Business name and Unit, postal address and e-mail of the entity that will use the certificate. The Certificate Authority reviews and authorizes the CSR before it supplies an SSL certificate that is signed electronically with its private key as an authority. In order to install an SSL, you'll need an overall of 4 batches of code - the CSR, a Private Key that is created after you generate the Request, the actual certificate as well as a specific Certificate Authority code, which is unique for every single vendor.
