A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to acquire an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and account info which will be exchanged between your site and its users. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address along with email, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor issues the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify 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 of the four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. After that, you will be able to use a URL starting 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 via their web browsers.
