I'd say the usual way to do this is to make the buffer read-only:

(setq buffer-read-only t)

Then commands or functions that are supposed to modify the content of
the buffer can do this by binding `inhibit-read-only' temporarily to
t:

(let ((inhibit-read-only t))
  ...
  (modify-the-buffer-contents)
  ...
  )
