A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you want to have an SSL certificate which will encrypt the payment and login info which are exchanged between your site and its customers. The CSR contains info about the website as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a dependable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the site visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR via their Internet browsers.
