What's Normal: MAC Addresses, (Fri, Oct 13th)

This post was originally published on this site

In this installment of "What's Normal", I want to discuss MAC addresses. MAC addresses are used to identify devices on ethernet networks. They are six bytes in length and typically expressed in hexadecimal, separated by a colon or a dash. MAC addresses identify network interfaces on the local network. They must be locally unique and are, to some extent globally unique.
