A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and account information which will be exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etcetera. Based on this code, an accredited SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they are a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
