Modern computing hardware is enormously complicated: a single memory request traverses multiple hardware translation and caching steps until it reaches its intended destination, which often appears at different physical addresses for different requesters.

Correctly capturing the complexity of this process is essential for correct system operation and system verification. We introduce decoding nets, a formal description for memory and interrupt systems, which we have successfully used in practice for page table generation, memory management and interrupt controller configuration.

Furthermore, we are actively using them to verify isolation guarantees of the ARM confidential compute architecture.
