/u/l_avventuraDoes go-ethereum/whisper provides any kind of Public Key Server to obtain other nodes’ public keyEthereum

Link on ethereum.stackexchange (https://ethereum.stackexchange.com/q/83968/4575). I have adviced to post this idea on Ethereum Reddit having in rare chance someone wants to set up a server.

For example GnuPG has a Public Key Server, where users able to obtain other users public-keys by using a key ID.

https://security.stackexchange.com/a/110146/179928:

OpenPGP User IDs

User IDs in OpenPGP are used to connect keys to entities like names and e-mail addresses. These are used to search for keys on key servers, and matching them to users/e-mail addresses.

node_a> gpg --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com --send-keys EFA2F330

node_b> gpg --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys EFA2F330


=> Does go-ethereum provides this approach for Whisper where key-ids might be the user’s Ethereum address in order to obtain other geth nodes’ public key for Whisper?

Here:

targetPeer (optional): Peer ID (for peer-to-peer message only).

Than is actual from this comment:

It is indeed be the enode of your target peer. See https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/blob/master/whisper/whisperv6/api.go#L294.

Overall, if I use enode as alternative to public-key, which is much larger string than the public key itself.
