A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to get an SSL certificate that will encode all the payment and account info which are exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the site as well as its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an accredited SSL vendor issues the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key to show that they are a reliable issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - both the keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you can use a URL beginning 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 through their web browsers.
