APIAKeyHi_EL1, Pointer Authentication Key A for Instruction (bits[127:64])

The APIAKeyHi_EL1 characteristics are:

Purpose

Holds bits[127:64] of key A used for authentication of instruction pointer values.

Note

The term APIAKey_EL1 is used to describe the concatenation of APIAKeyHi_EL1: APIAKeyLo_EL1.

Configuration

This register is present only when FEAT_PAuth is implemented. Otherwise, direct accesses to APIAKeyHi_EL1 are UNDEFINED.

Attributes

APIAKeyHi_EL1 is a 64-bit register.

Field descriptions

The APIAKeyHi_EL1 bit assignments are:

6362616059585756555453525150494847464544434241403938373635343332
64 bit value, bits[127:64] of the 128 bit pointer authentication key value
64 bit value, bits[127:64] of the 128 bit pointer authentication key value
313029282726252423222120191817161514131211109876543210

Bits [63:0]

64 bit value, bits[127:64] of the 128 bit pointer authentication key value.

On a Warm reset, this field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.
