A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to obtain an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and login info which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to identify that they're a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
