a random 12-digit mac address generator

Project description

a utility that generates 12-digit mac addresses; either the NIC portion or full 12-digit MAC.

the optional -f argument will return a random 12-digit MAC address that can be identified by the locally administrated address (LAA) format. This means you will always see x2, x6, xA, or xE at the beginning of a MAC address generated by randmac.


to install with pip:

pip install randmac


Python >3.2 required.

mac address formats

Supported MAC address formats:


where M stands for the manufacturer or vendor, and S stands for the NIC specific portion.


you can from randmac import RandMac and use it like RandMac().

if you wish to change the mac address format. provide a sample mac so randmac knows what the output format should be.

you can from randmac import RandMac and use it like RandMac("0000.0000.0000").

from a terminal (if the the console scripts entry point randmac is in your path and executable) you can use randmac to get a generate a new 12-digit LAA address, or randmac 00:00:00:00:00:00 -p to generate a MAC with the same OUI, but a different NIC portion.

example usage

>>> from randmac import RandMac
>>> RandMac()
>>> RandMac("00:00:00:00:00:00", True)
>>> RandMac("0000:0000:0000", True)
>>> RandMac("0000:0000:0000")
