MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. -based authentication is often used to authenticate and allow network access through certain devices while denying access to the rest. For example, if clients are allowed access to the network through station A, then one method of authenticating station A is MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. -based. Clients may be required to authenticate themselves using other methods depending on the network privileges required.
