From the network birth to the vigorous development, as well as many concomitant security problems, all symbolized the network developing process approaches the ecological organization evolution process. But today's tradition network security defense architecture is exposing the mechanical and stiff malpractice gradually, which is unable to deal with a variety of the security threats that are latent and multiply unceasingly in "the network world". A novel eco-defending architecture for network security similar to an artificial ecosystem is proposed, which builds an artificial ecosystem simulating and implementing network security self-organization and evolution. We give its related definitions, design and critical functional components that emulate different lymphocytes and fleeting contacts between them, and finally it shows many unique properties in ecological organization evolution process, such as high degree of autonomy, distribution, evolution, and scalability and so on.
