Strong set

The strong set refers to the largest collection of strongly connected PGP keys.[1] This forms the basis for the global web of trust.

Any two keys in the strong set have a path between them; while islands of sets of keys that only sign each other in a disconnected group can and do exist, only one member of that group needs to exchange signatures with the strong set for that group to also become a part of the strong set.[2]

The strong set had a size of about 55000 Keys at the beginning of the year 2015.[3]
