C Specification

The VkPhysicalDevicePipelineProtectedAccessFeaturesEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_pipeline_protected_access
typedef struct VkPhysicalDevicePipelineProtectedAccessFeaturesEXT {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           pipelineProtectedAccess;
} VkPhysicalDevicePipelineProtectedAccessFeaturesEXT;


This structure describes the following feature:

  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • pipelineProtectedAccess indicates whether the implementation supports specifying protected access on individual pipelines.


If the VkPhysicalDevicePipelineProtectedAccessFeaturesEXT structure is included in the pNext chain of the VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 structure passed to vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2, it is filled in to indicate whether each corresponding feature is supported. VkPhysicalDevicePipelineProtectedAccessFeaturesEXT can also be used in the pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to selectively enable these features.

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