- Is the 64-bit name of the general-purpose register to be transferred.

Load Register, with pointer authentication. This instruction authenticates an address from a base register using a modifier of zero and the specified key, adds an immediate offset to the authenticated address, and loads a 64-bit doubleword from memory at this resulting address into a register.
Key A is used for
LDRAA, and key B is used for
If the authentication passes, the PE behaves the same as for an
LDR instruction. If the authentication fails, a Translation fault is generated.
The authenticated address is not written back to the base register, unless the pre-indexed variant of the instruction is used. In this case, the address that is written back to the base register does not include the pointer authentication code.
