A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed in case you want to acquire an SSL certificate which will encode all of the payment and account details that will be exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they're a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you'll be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR using their web browsers.
