A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you wish to acquire an SSL certificate that will encrypt the payment and account 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 - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they are a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL beginning with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
