Cyberspace security is vital to state interest. Recently, there are some challenges in cyber security. In architecture for instance, although protection mechanisms are introduced and applied everywhere, the modern network architecture (well connected and open) still has difficulty in completely ensuring cyber security. It is also observed that contemporary cyber security protection mechanism highly depends on the priori information of security threats and thus will hardly address unknown potential threats. In this paper, a novel cyberspace security protection framework is proposed. A dual-structural Internet scheme that integrates the current Internet architecture with a redundant secondary structure network characterized by its broad-storage scheme, heterogeneous structure, and dynamic protection mechanism is introduced. Also, a novel active defense mechanism that is knowledge-data driven and thus independent of the priori information of the security threat is proposed. Furthermore, some key techniques such as transparent access and prepositive active defense are introduced. The theoretical and technical work proposed in this paper offers a comprehensively evolutionary solution to constructing a cyberspace in which the protection mechanism is more independent and active.
