DeepSAFE Six Pillars Model for Physical and Digital Security, Safety and Protection

DeepSAFE's Six Pillars for Security, Safety and Protection

DeepSAFE Six Pillars Model

Since 1996, our founder Mr. Ahmed Sallam has embarked on a transformative journey to redesign hardware, firmware, and software modules, fortifying them from internal and external threats. This voyage culminated in the development of what we now proudly call DeepSAFE Technology, a culmination of multiple iterations and years of dedicated effort. To gain deeper insights into this journey, you can explore our comprehensive DeepSAFE section on the website. The result of this enduring quest is the establishment of a robust security model built upon six distinct pillars. Within this section, we delve into the wide array of protection technologies available in the industry and their respective applications. Our highly dedicated team boasts extensive experience in crafting these protection features. We stand ready to assist you in seamlessly integrating these safeguards directly into your products and solutions. Moreover, we offer you the opportunity to nurture innovation independently, empowering you to create your own customized implementations that remain concealed from potential adversaries. At DeepSAFE Technology, we provide you with the knowledge and tools needed to fortify your security posture and stay ahead in the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity.

Hardware-assisted and accelerated security refers to the use of specialized hardware or hardware extensions to enhance the security features and performance of a system. These hardware solutions are designed to enhance, offload and accelerate security functions that are typically handled by software. Some key objectives are the following:

Examples and use cases

Intel Hardware Root of Trust:



Memory Protection Units (MPU) and Memory Management Units (MMU):

Trusted Platform Module (TPM):

Hardware Security Module (HSM):

Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX):

Network Processors for SSL/TLS Offloading:

Cryptographic Accelerators:

Firewall and Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems (IDS/IPS):


Quantum Cryptography Systems:


Biometric Sensors for Authentication:


Hardware Random Number Generator (RNG):


ARMv8-A Pointer Authentication:


Memory Protection Keys (MPKs):


Intel Threat Detection Technology (TDT):


These hardware-assisted and accelerated security technologies provide an additional layer of protection and performance, complementing traditional software-based security measures. Their use cases span various domains, from individual device security to enterprise and cloud environments, enhancing overall security posture and efficiency.

2. Below-OS Security, Safety and Protection

Below-OS refers to security, safety and protection measures and mechanisms that operate beneath the operating system level. This includes hardware-level and firmware-level solutions that provide foundational security, safety and protection independent of the OS. Some key objectives are the following:

Examples and use cases

Trusted Platform Module (TPM):


Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Secure Boot:


Hardware Security Modules (HSM):


Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX):


ARM TrustZone:


Self-Encrypting Drives (SEDs):


BIOS/UEFI Firmware:


Hardware-enforced Stack Protection:


Direct Memory Access (DMA) Protection:


Firmware-Based Trusted Execution Environments (TEE):


Secure Boot:

These below-OS security measures are crucial in establishing a root of trust and ensuring that the hardware and firmware layers of a computer system are secure and trustworthy. They provide a foundational security level that is critical in the face of increasingly sophisticated and low-level cyber threats.

3. High Integrity Assured Computing

High Integrity Assured Computing refers to computing environments and systems that are designed to be highly secure, reliable, and resilient, especially in handling critical tasks where errors or breaches can have severe consequences. Some key objectives include:

Implementations use cases

Industry - levelĀ  use cases

Aerospace and Avionics Systems:


Automotive Industry:


Nuclear Energy Control Systems:


Medical Devices:


Finance and Banking:


Military and Defense Systems:


Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and SCADA:


Space Exploration:

These examples highlight the importance of high integrity assured computing across various critical domains. The common theme is the need for systems that are robust, secure, and able to operate reliably under challenging conditions, where failure can lead to significant consequences.

4. Proactive Behavioral Protection

Proactive behavioral protection in cybersecurity refers to methods and systems that anticipate and defend against potential security threats by analyzing and responding to the behavior of users, applications, and network traffic, rather than relying solely on known threat signatures. Some key objectives are the following:

Examples and use cases

Anomaly Detection Systems:


User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA):


Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR):


Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) in Email Systems:


Behavior-based Antivirus:


Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS):


Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Cybersecurity:


Zero Trust Security Models:


Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP):

Proactive behavioral protection is crucial in modern cybersecurity, as it helps in early detection of threats that might not be identified through traditional signature-based methods. This approach is particularly effective against sophisticated, unknown, or evolving cyber threats.

5.Ā  Dynamically Verifiable Trust Boundaries

Dynamic trust boundaries refer to adaptive security measures that adjust the level of trust assigned to users, devices, applications or networks based on continuous assessment of their behavior and context. Instead of static, one-time verifications, trust is dynamically modified based on real-time data. Some key objectives are the following:

Examples and use cases

Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA):


Adaptive Authentication:


Context-Aware Data Access Policies:


Behavior-Based Network Segmentation:


AI and ML in Threat Detection and Response:


IoT Device Management:


Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs):


Dynamic trust boundaries are crucial in a landscape where threats can emerge from seemingly legitimate sources and where the distinction between inside and outside the network perimeter is increasingly blurred. By continuously evaluating trust, organizations can respond more effectively to evolving security threats.

6. Self protection and self-healing

Self-protection and self-healing refers to systems and applications having built-in mechanisms to detect, prevent, respond and remediate security threats and safety incidents autonomously, including hidden or stealthy attacks. This approach is increasingly important in defending against targeted attacks, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero-day exploits that traditional security tools may not detect. Some key objectives:

Examples and use cases

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) Systems:


Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) with Anomaly Detection:


Self-Healing Networks:


AI-Driven Security Information and Event Management (SIEM):


Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) with Adaptive Learning:


Behavior-Based Antivirus and Anti-Malware:


Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs):


Database Activity Monitoring (DAM):


These examples of self-protection mechanisms emphasize the importance of proactive and dynamic defense strategies in modern cybersecurity, especially in an era where attacks are becoming more sophisticated and harder to detect with traditional security measures.
