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 VkPhysicalDeviceProperties2, it is filled with a value indicating the implementation-dependent behavior.
