AUTIA, AUTIA1716, AUTIASP, AUTIAZ, AUTIZA

Authenticate Instruction address, using key A. This instruction authenticates an instruction address, using a modifier and key A.

The address is:

  • In the general-purpose register that is specified by <Xd> for AUTIA and AUTIZA.
  • In X17, for AUTIA1716.
  • In X30, for AUTIASP and AUTIAZ.

The modifier is:

  • In the general-purpose register or stack pointer that is specified by <Xn|SP> for AUTIA.
  • The value zero, for AUTIZA and AUTIAZ.
  • In X16, for AUTIA1716.
  • In SP, for AUTIASP.

If the authentication passes, the upper bits of the address are restored to enable subsequent use of the address. If the authentication fails, the upper bits are corrupted and any subsequent use of the address results in a Translation fault.

It has encodings from 2 classes: Integer and System

Assembler Symbols

<Xd>

Is the 64-bit name of the general-purpose destination register, encoded in the "Rd" field.

<Xn|SP>

Is the 64-bit name of the general-purpose source register or stack pointer, encoded in the "Rn" field.

Operation

if HavePACExt() then
    if source_is_sp then
        X[d] = AuthIA(X[d], SP[], FALSE);
    else
        X[d] = AuthIA(X[d], X[n], FALSE);
