What Is a CSR?

certificate signing request (CSR) is an encoded message that contains a public key and other relevant information such as your common name, locality and SAN entries (if applicable).

Once all of the desired information has been entered during the CSR generation process, the request is digitally signed using a corresponding private key. The information found within a CSR is used by a Certificate Authority to verify and ultimately create your signed server certificate.
