A MAC address generator (Media Access Control) is therefore a tool that allows you to generate MAC addresses at random.

Why use an address generator?

MAC addresses are therefore used to identify low-level network devices, such as network cards and switches.

A MAC address is thus a unique 48-bit identifier, usually represented as hexadecimal notation separated by colons, such as 00:11:22:33:44:55.

For example, 00:0a:95:9d:68:16 is a valid MAC address.

A generator can be used for security testing, to simulate network load scenarios, to generate random MAC addresses for virtual machines, etc.

It can also provide options for generating MAC addresses in specific ranges. Or to avoid MAC addresses reserved for specific uses, such as broadcast addresses or IEEE reserved addresses.
