A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to acquire an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account information that will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the website plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout 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 and the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL that begins with https:// for your site instead of http:// and the site visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
