If you wish to use an SSL Certificate on your website, in order to protect the payment and login data which users submit, you'll need a Certificate Signing Request, also known as CSR. The Request contains all the info for the entity which will use the SSL in an encoded form, such as the exact web address for the website, the Business/Organization name, physical and email address. It needs to be submitted to a service provider, or Certificate Authority, which reviews the provided details and based on it, issues the SSL certificate. The actual SSL installation requires 4 bits of code - the certificate, the CSR, a special private key which is generated along with the CSR and the SSL vendor private key. A site which has an SSL installed can be accessed with https:// instead of the usual http:// and the information submitted for the CSR can be viewed in standard text format via a web browser.
