XIP is a digitally-signed archive format created by Apple, similar to ZIP (able to archive multiple files and directories) but with authentication possible via public/private keys.

It is reportedly based on Xar and gzip.

Apple states that "Starting with macOS Sierra [2016-09], only XIP archives signed by Apple will be expanded."[1]
