are an advanced way of controlling access permissions to file objects. Neither
ISO 9660 nor Rock Ridge specify a way to record ACLs. So libisofs has
introduced a standard conformant extension named AAIP for that purpose.
It uses this extension if enabled by option -acl.
AAIP enhanced images are supposed to be mountable normally, but one cannot
expect that the mounted filesystem will show and respect the eventual ACLs.
For now, only xorriso is able to retrieve those ACLs. It can bring them into
effect when files get restored to an ACL enabled file system or it can
print them in a format suitable for tool setfacl.
Files with ACL show as group permissions the setting of entry "mask::" if
that entry exists. Nevertheless the non-listed group members get handled
according to entry "group::". xorriso brings "group::" into effect before
eventually removing the ACL from a file.

are pairs of name and value which can be attached to file objects. AAIP is
able to represent them and xorriso allows to record and restore pairs which
have names out of the user namespace. I.e. those which begin with "user.",
like "user.x" or "user.whatever". Value can be any string which does
not exceed the size of 4095 characters. xattr processing happens only if
it is enabled by option -xattr.
As with ACL, currently only xorriso is able to retrieve xattr from AAIP
enhanced images and to restore them to xattr capable file systems.
