Gem Version Build Status Coverage Status Code Climate

There is a public registry maintained by the IANA that is required to be used by all vendors operating in certains spaces. Ethernet, Bluetooth, and Wireless device manufacturers are all assigned unique prefixes. This database is available publicly online and can be used to identify the manufacturer of these devices. This library provides an easy mechanism to perform these lookups.

It is important to note that the way the lookup occur in this gem right now is on the slower side, especially the first time a lookup is done as it doesn't load it's database until then. This will improve over time as I already have ideas on how to make the performance better.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'louis'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install louis

Usage

Louis.lookup('84:3a:4b:49:bc:f0')
=> {"short_vendor"=>"IntelCor", "long_vendor"=>"Intel Corporate"}

When the Vendor information isn't known it will instead return:

=> {"long_vendor"=>"Unknown", "short_vendor"=>"Unknown"}

OUI Database

The textual database in this gem is from the Wireshark project, specifically sourced from their source. The file itself is licensed under GPLv2 on it's own and subsequent use needs to conform to it's licensing terms.
