SafeTSA : an inherently type-safe SSA-based code format

Conventional type safe virtual machines, such as the Java Virtual Machine, utilize a stack-oriented bytecode language and require verification prior to execution. We present SafeTSA, a compiler-friendly alternative to stack-oriented bytecode based on static single assignment form. SafeTSA's special features (type separation, dominator-based scoping, and high-level control structures) facilitate producer-side, ahead-of-time optimization and an inherently-safe, space-efficient encoding.
