A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you wish to obtain an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and login information that will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to recognize that they're a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you'll be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
