Media Access Control or MAC address also known as physical address or hardware address, it’s a six bytes length unique identifier, assigned to network devices. The standard format it’s six groups of two hexadecimal digits separated by – (hyphens) or : (colons), but some manufacturers use other formats. The MAC addresses are managed by the IEEE Registration Authority and a public database it’s available at http://standards.ieee.org/develop/regauth/index.html.
