Official Mirror:
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) assigns an Organizational Unique Identifier (OUI) to manufacturers of network interfaces. Each interface has a Media Access Control (MAC) address of six bytes. The first three bytes are the OUI. Net::MAC::Vendor allows you to take a MAC address and turn it into the OUI and vendor information. You can, for instance, scan a network, collect MAC addresses, and turn those addresses into vendors. With vendor information, you can often guess at what you are looking at (e.g. an Apple product). You can use this as a module as its individual functions, or call it as a script with a list of MAC addresses as arguments. The module can figure it out.
