PACDA, PACDZA

Pointer Authentication Code for Data address, using key A. This instruction computes and inserts a pointer authentication code for a data address, using a modifier and key A.

The address is in the general-purpose register that is specified by <Xd>.

The modifier is:

  • In the general-purpose register or stack pointer that is specified by <Xn|SP> for PACDA.
  • The value zero, for PACDZA.

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 source_is_sp then
    X[d] = AddPACDA(X[d], SP[]);
else
    X[d] = AddPACDA(X[d], X[n]);
