A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is required if you wish to acquire an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and login information which will be exchanged between your website and its clients. The CSR contains info about the site and 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 gives you the certificate, that is digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to show that they are a reliable issuer. Throughout the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the installation of the SSL involves all of the four codes - both the keys, the certificate along with the CSR. Next, you can use a URL beginning with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your site visitors will be able to view the info that you have provided for the CSR through their Internet browsers.
