A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you wish to have an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and account information which are exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they are a trusted issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
