As the title says I'm tinkering with Mac Addresses. I'm writing a simple python script that just takes in a Mac Address as a string and tries to figure out as much information about the device given nothing but that address (not even network access). However, I'm not sure what all that Mac can tell me or how to determine it. I know Mac Addresses can be spoofed. I know that the first 3 octets usually represent the OUI (Organizational Unique Identifier) but beyond that what can a Mac Address tell me? What other useful information can I extract? (any details or resources about how would be nice too) Thanks in advance.
I'm interested in the ability to make hardware and apply the desired software to it, whether it be home code or open-source. Does any one have resources that they themselves have used to obtain this skill? I will be posting my progress in this thread even if there are no replies.
