Fig. 11. Use of "shadow" capability registers to speed up an access control list system. When a pointer register containing a unique identifier is flrst wed, the shadow register is automatically loaded from the access controller to which the unique identifier refers.

Storing of a pointer register means storing of the unique identifier only; the shadow register is never stored.
