A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required when you would like to get an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account details which will be exchanged between your website and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the website and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address plus email, company name and unit, etcetera. Based upon this code, an authorized SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to identify that they're a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you can use a URL that starts with https:// for your website instead of http:// and the website visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
