A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you would like to obtain an SSL certificate which will encode the payment and account information which are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they are a dependable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
