A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you wish to acquire an SSL certificate that will encrypt all of the payment and account information which are exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site plus its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address along with e-mail, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which 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 four codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. After that, you can use a URL that begins with https:// for your website instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the information that you have provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
