hardware address

hardware address
   The address assigned to a network interface card (NIC) by the original manufacturer or by the network administrator if the interface card is configurable.
   This address identifies the local device address to the rest of the network and allows messages to find the correct destination. Also known as the physical address, media access control (MAC) address, or Ethernet address.
