In this paper, we propose a scalable and seamless connection migration scheme for moving target defense in legacy networks. The main idea is that a host is allowed to receive incoming packets with a destination address that is either its current IP address or its previous IP address for a period of time because the host does not physically move into another network. Experimental results show that our scheme outperforms the existing connection migration mechanism regardless of the number of active connections in the host.
