Abstract


MAC (Media Access Control) is a part of data link layer in OSI model, which takes high responsibility to data interchange and connectivity on wireless network. MAC having Filtering option that will consider as white filtering and black filtering, the MAC address can be easily obtained from network traffic. The MAC Address Filtering allows device with specific MAC addresses to connect to any wireless network. This isn’t a great security tool because people can easily spoof their MAC addresses. In this paper is a basic idea about MAC address filtering issues and how can prevent the network.

Keywords
