A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed if you would like to acquire an SSL certificate that will encrypt all the payment and account info that are exchanged between your site and its visitors. The CSR contains info about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - website address, physical address and email, company name and unit, etc. Based on this code, a certified SSL vendor provides you with the certificate, which is digitally signed with the vendor's private key so as to recognize that they are a trusted issuer. At the time of the CSR generation, a unique private key is also generated and the installation of the SSL involves all 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate plus the CSR. Then, you can use a URL that begins 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 using their web browsers.
