Hmm not sure I understand the question. You've provided a public key which is an address used in the consensus layer. You can explore information about this validator here.

Checking the link, you can see that the public key used to make the deposit is 0xf82ac5937a20dc862f9bc0668779031e06000f17. This address triggered a Lido smart contract to make several deposits.
