Questions tagged [csr]

A CSR (Certificate Signing Request) is a block of data containing information that will be included in your certificate such as your organization name, common name (domain name), locality, and country. It also contains the public key that will be included in your certificate. A private key is usually created at the same time that you create the CSR.
