MAC vendor lookup

Every connected device around the world comes with a unique Media Access Control address, or a   MAC address.

Task
MAC vendor lookup
You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.

A common task a network administrator may come across is being able to identify a network device's manufacturer when given only a MAC address.


Task

Interface with one (or numerous) APIs that exist on the internet and retrieve the device manufacturer based on a supplied MAC address.

A MAC address that does not return a valid result should return the String "N/A".   An error related to the network connectivity or the API should return a null result.

Many implementations on this page use http://api.macvendors.com/ which, as of 19th September 2021, is throttling requests. After only 2 calls, the following response is returned for all subsequent requests. If you are planning to use the same provider or going to run the examples on this page, consider building in a delay between two calls.

Library: HttpCommand

Normally something like this would just be mapping the lookup across an array, but that doesn't let us control the timing of the request dispatch. To insert a delay between requests we have to create a traditional function ("tradfn") with a for loop.

⍝load the library module
]load HttpCommand

⍝ define a direct function (dfn) to look up a single MAC address
vendorLookup1  { (HttpCommand.Get 'http://api.macvendors.com/',⍕).Data }

⍝ define a traditional function to look up all the MAC addresses in a list with
⍝ a delay between calls

⍝ The header says that the function is named vendorLookup, it takes a single
⍝ parameter which we call macList, and the value of the local variable
⍝ vendors will become the function's return value
 vendors   vendorLookup macList 
    ⍝ look up the first vendor and put it into an array in our return var
    vendors  vendorLookup1 1macList
    
    ⍝ Loop over the rest of the array
    :For burger :In 1macList
       ⎕DL 2                              ⍝ wait 2 seconds
       vendors  vendorLookup1 burger   ⍝ then look up the next vendor and append
    :EndFor


⍝ demo data
macList   '88:53:2E:67:07:BE' 'D4:F4:6F:C9:EF:8D' 'FC:FB:FB:01:FA:21' 
macList  '4c:72:b9:56:fe:bc' '00-14-22-01-23-45'

⍝ look up the vendors (takes a while with the 2-second delay between lookups)
vendorList  vendorLookup macList

⍝ the result is an array (a 1-row by N-column matrix). to print out one vendor
⍝ per line, we reshape it to be N rows by 1 column instead. 
{(1⌷⍴) 1  } vendorList

AppleScriptEdit

set apiRoot to "https://api.macvendors.com"
set macList to {"88:53:2E:67:07:BE", "D4:F4:6F:C9:EF:8D", ¬
                "FC:FB:FB:01:FA:21", "4c:72:b9:56:fe:bc", "00-14-22-01-23-45"}

on lookupVendor(macAddr)
  global apiRoot
  return do shell script "curl " & apiRoot & "/" & macAddr
end lookupVendor

set table to { lookupVendor(first item of macList) }
repeat with burger in macList's items 2 thru -1
    delay 1.5
    set end of table to lookupVendor(burger)
end repeat

set text item delimiters to linefeed
return table as string

If this is part of a larger script you probably want to save and restore the text item delimiters:

set savedTID to text item delimiters
set text item delimiters to linefeed
set tableText to table as string
set text item delimiters to savedTID
return tableText

UNIX ShellEdit

Translation of: AppleScript
Works with: Bourne Again SHell
Works with: Korn Shell version 93+
Works with: Z Shell

Surprising that nobody had implemented the Bash / Shell version yet.

macList=(88:53:2E:67:07:BE D4:F4:6F:C9:EF:8D FC:FB:FB:01:FA:21
         4c:72:b9:56:fe:bc 00-14-22-01-23-45)

lookup() {
  curl -s "http://api.macvendors.com/$1" && echo
}

lookup "${macList[0${ZSH_VERSION:++1}]}"
for burger in "${macList[@]:1}"; do
  sleep 2
  lookup "$burger"
done

It can be made to work in a pure-POSIX shell without array variables:

Works with: Bourne Shell
Works with: Almquist Shell
set -- 88:53:2E:67:07:BE D4:F4:6F:C9:EF:8D FC:FB:FB:01:FA:21 \
       4c:72:b9:56:fe:bc 00-14-22-01-23-45

lookup() {
  curl -s "http://api.macvendors.com/$1" && echo
}

lookup "$1"
shift
for burger; do
  sleep 2
  curl -s "http://api.macvendors.com/$burger" && echo
done

And hey, just for completeness, let's toss in a [t]csh version:

Works with: C Shell
set macList=(88:53:2E:67:07:BE D4:F4:6F:C9:EF:8D FC:FB:FB:01:FA:21 \
             4c:72:b9:56:fe:bc 00-14-22-01-23-45)

alias lookup curl -s "http://api.macvendors.com/!":1 "&&" echo

lookup "$macList[1]"
foreach burger ($macList[2-]:q)
  sleep 2

WrenEdit

Wren CLI doesn't currently expose a way to look up a MAC address.

However, if Wren is embedded in (say) a suitable Go program, then we can ask the latter to do it for us.

/* mac_vendor_lookup.wren */
class MAC {
    foreign static lookup(address)
}

System.print(MAC.lookup("FC:FB:FB:01:FA:21"))
for (i in 1..1e8) {} // slow down request
System.print(MAC.lookup("23:45:67"))

which we embed in the following Go program and run it.

Library: WrenGo
/* mac_vendor_lookup.go */
package main

import (
    wren "github.com/crazyinfin8/WrenGo"
    "io/ioutil"
    "net/http"
)

type any = interface{}

func macLookup(vm *wren.VM, parameters []any) (any, error) {
    mac := parameters[1].(string)
    resp, err := http.Get("http://api.macvendors.com/" + mac)
    if err != nil {
        return nil, nil
    }
    body, err := ioutil.ReadAll(resp.Body)
    if err != nil {
        return nil, nil
    }
    var vendor = string(body)
    if vendor == `{"errors":{"detail":"Not Found"}}` {
        return "N/A", nil
    }
    return vendor, nil
}    

func main() {
    vm := wren.NewVM()
    fileName := "mac_vendor_lookup.wren"
    methodMap := wren.MethodMap{"static lookup(_)": macLookup}
    classMap := wren.ClassMap{"MAC": wren.NewClass(nil, nil, methodMap)}
    module := wren.NewModule(classMap)
    vm.SetModule(fileName, module)
    vm.InterpretFile(fileName)
    vm.Free()
}
Output:
Cisco Systems, Inc
N/A

zklEdit

Translation of: Lua

Uses libcurl (the multiprotocol file transfer library) to do the web query

var [const] CURL=Import("zklCurl");   // libcurl
const MAC_VENDORS="http://api.macvendors.com/";

fcn lookUp(macAddress){
   httpAddr:=MAC_VENDORS + macAddress;
   vender:=CURL().get(httpAddr); //-->(Data,bytes of header,bytes of trailer)
   vender=vender[0].del(0,vender[1]);  // remove HTTP header
   vender.text;		// Data --> String (Data is a byte bucket)
}
lookUp("FC-A1-3E-2A-1C-33").println();
lookUp("4c:72:b9:56:fe:bc").println();
lookUp("foobar").println();
Output:
Samsung Electronics Co.,Ltd
PEGATRON CORPORATION
Vendor not found
