Get client MAC address?

I want to get client MAC Address to verify right client PC/Laptop access to our system.
Can I use Applet to do this and how?

Thank you.

Hi,

to verify that the right PC / Laptop is accessing the system the most common way to do it is to use client side certificates. In this case you have to add a certificate on every client that you want to grand access to the web application. This is not CUBA related since normally it will be handled by a reverse proxy like apache / nginx.

Relying on the MAC address is additionally not secure because faking the MAC address is quite easily possible.

Besides that nowadays the Java plugin is not available in normal browsers anymore. Here’s an example of this: http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/289
