A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to get an SSL certificate that will encode the payment and login information which will be exchanged between your site and its clients. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a registered SSL vendor gives you the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to show that they're a reliable issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all four codes - the two keys, the certificate as well as the CSR. Then, you will be able to use a URL starting with https:// for your site instead of http:// and your site visitors can view the info that you've provided for the CSR through their web browsers.
