thawte Support: How to generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR)
What is a CSR?
The Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is a small, encrypted text file. The CSR contains information about your organization and the domain you wish to secure. A CSR is what you give to a Certification Authority, such as VeriSign, to generate your SSL certificate. It is an essential part of obtaining an SSL certificate.
