C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceProtectedMemoryProperties structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceProtectedMemoryProperties {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           protectedNoFault;
} VkPhysicalDeviceProtectedMemoryProperties;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.


  • protectedNoFault specifies the behavior of the implementation when protected memory access rules are broken. If protectedNoFault is VK_TRUE, breaking those rules will not result in process termination or device loss.

If the VkPhysicalDeviceProtectedMemoryProperties structure is included in the pNext chain of the VkPhysicalDeviceProperties2 structure passed to vkGetPhysicalDeviceProperties2, it is filled in with each corresponding implementation-dependent property.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceProtectedMemoryProperties-sType-sType
