Since it is impractical to replace the entire traditional network by the SDN network due to some constraints i.e. financial budget, limited skills to SDN, in addition to the need to have the benefits and flexibility of the traditional network, the partial replacement implemented by deploying or replacing some legacy nodes by the SDN switches have emerged. Such replacement requires routing and security addressing coordination issues. In this research, we present our proposed solution for
more » ... c replacement of a segment of the legacy network by SDN nodes, and generation of a set of OpenFlow rules and switches configuration that meets the traditional network behavior requirements. The rules are identified based on the analysis of the network traffic acquired from the legacy segment.
