Comodo SSL Certificates Secure BarackObama.com

Over the past year, Barack Obama has received an unprecedented number of online donations. It seems that every day brings another fundraising record to the Obama campaign, a central feature of which is www.barackobama.com, a site that provides information about the candidate and his campaign, as well as the ability to make online donations.

The huge surge of online donations at barackobama.com put it in the company of the Internet's major e-commerce websites. As with any site handling financial transactions, security and trust are of paramount importance. That's why visitors to the donation page at barackobama.com will see a Comodo trust mark, signifying that the transactions processed there are secured by Comodo's strong SSL encryption, keeping donor information safe during its transmission across the Internet.

Comodo provides these security and trust assurance services to numerous similar campaign websites as well as over 200,000 sites engaged in electronic commerce.

The Obama campaign obtained its Comodo Digital Certificates through Comodo partner Blue State Digital, a nonprofit organization that provides internet services and web tools to political campaigns and organizations across the globe. Blue State Digital has managed the online fundraising process and peer-to-peer networking initiatives of BarackObama.com using its "BSD Toolset" software.
