A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to obtain an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and account info that 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 plus email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they're a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you can use a URL starting with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
