The MAC address API allows you to retrieve OUI vendor information, detect virtual machines, possible applications, read the information encoded in the MAC, and get our research's results regarding the given MAC address or the OUI.
1,000 free requests daily. No credit card required.
Name of the company which registered the MAC addresses block, it’s street address and country code in ISO 3166 format.
Dates when the MAC address block the given MAC address belongs to was registered and updated the last time.
Check if the MAC address belongs to any of the registered MAC blocks.
Check if the provided MAC address is syntactically correct.
Check if the MAC address belongs to the privately registered block.
For the MAC block the MAC address belongs to, get Left and Right borders, total number of the MAC addresses in it, and assignment type.
If the MAC address is assigned to a Virtual Machine, output its Vendor Name (e.g. 'VMWare'), otherwise say 'Not detected'.
Some MAC addresses and their ranges are reserved for specific use cases by their vendors. Such addresses typically indicate what higher-level protocol is encapsulated in a frame.
For some specific OUIs or exact MAC addresses, Wireshark Database provides extra details which may help to recognize the MAC address application or indicate an actual vendor rather than the original assignment.
Determine whether it's a Multicast or Unicast address.
Determine whether it's a Universally or Locally administered address.
Vendor data is provided daily, directly from the IEEE Standards Association.
We build a knowledge base about known MAC addresses' connections to Virtual Machines.
We also collect our own historical information since 1997.
Our engine analyses MAC address to retrieve the information encoded in it.
We provide extensions for the major open source threat intelligence platforms. If you use any of them, you can easy integrate our service.Learn more about API integration
To make coding against MAC address API easier, use client libraries that reduce the amount of code you need to write.Go to libraries
