A Media Access Control address is a unique identifier assigned to a network interface used for network communication. A MAC address is assigned to a device by the manufacturer and so this address, unlike an IP address, is not normally changed. MAC addresses are represented in notation by six groups of two hexadecimal digits, separated by hyphens or colons: for example, 01:23:45:67:89:ab.
A FortiGate can identify network devices using MAC addresses.
