Physical Bit Media Access Control (MAC) sub-layer responsible for controlling how devices in a network gain access to data and permission to transmit it. Logical Link Control (LLC) sub-layer controls error checking and packet synchronization.
  • 4. MAC Address • A unique identifier assigned to network interfaces (for communications on the physical network segment) • Network address for most IEEE 802 network technologies (including Ethernet and WiFi) • Most often assigned by the manufacturer • Stored in hardware (on card's read-only memory or some other firmware mechanism) Image source:
  • 5. What is MAC Filtering? • Definition, as per wikipedia, “In computer networking, MAC Filtering refers to a security access control method whereby the 48-bit address assigned to each network card is used to determine access to the network. “ • Definition, as per TechNet, “MAC address filtering is a feature for IPv4 addresses that allows you to include or exclude computers and devices based on their MAC address” MAC Filtering = GUI Filtering = Layer 2 Filtering = Link-layer Filtering
  • 6. How to implement MAC Filtering? • When configuring MAC address filtering, you can specify the hardware types that are exempted from filtering (By default, all hardware types defined in RFC 1700 are exempted from filtering) • Before configuring MAC address filtering, • Enable and define an explicit allow and deny list (for DHCP to function smoothly) • Enable and define an allow list and a block list (the block list has precedence over the allow list)
  • 7. How to implement MAC Filtering? • Four step process to enable MAC address filtering on Windows Computer: 1. In the DHCP console, double-click the IPv4 node, and then double- click the Filters node 2. Right-click Allow or Deny as appropriate for the type of filter you are creating, and then click New Filter 3. Enter the MAC address to filter, and then enter a comment in the Description field if you want to. Click Add. Repeat this step to add other filters 4. Click Close when you have finished
