A Media access control address(MAC) is a unique identifier assigned to network interface for communication on the physical network segment.MAC address are used as a network address for most IEEE 802 network technologies,including Ethernet and wifi.Logically mac address are used in media access control protocol sub layer of the osi reference model.MAC address are most often assigned by the manufacturer of a network interface controller,such as a card's read only memory or some other firmware mechanism.
What Is Your Requirement?
First and last thing you need that is linux terminal
Step By Step Guide To Change MAC Address On Kali LinuxStep:1.) first of all open linux terminal and type bellow comand
Note: when you exicute above command you will see your original MAC address,in my case my original MAC address is 08:00:27:b2:4d:4b
Step:2) for temporary changing our MAC address we need to turn off the network interface first by running bellow command for turn off the network interface
ifconfig eth0 down
Step:3) after that you canconfigure the new mac address by following bellow cammand
ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:00:00:00:00:02
Note: you can change the MAC address using this hexadecimal format XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
Step:4) after this ,Now we can turn on the network interface again using following command.
ifconfig eth0 up
Step:5) now we are coming to last step we can check again our MAC whether it's change or not.
IMPORTENT : This is make sure your changing MAC address automaticlay changed to orginal when you restart your machine if you want to change your mAC address permanently even you restart your pc coming towared my next article which is given in bellow steps
Step:6) do you know Kali Linux was built based on Debian. In Debian all the network interface was located on /etc/network/interfaces.
Step:7) We will configure the /etc/network/interfaces. In this tutorial I will use pico text editor, but you can choose any of your favourite text editor.
Step:8) Now we will add one line of script to change our MAC address permanently
pre-up ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:00:00:00:00:02
Note: This script will be called on system startup.
Step:9) If we want to restore the default MAC address, just add the # sign in front of script in Step 8.
#pre-up ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:00:00:00:00:02
