Binary Content Type Support in Oracle Integration Rest Adapter Trigger
Oracle Integration Rest Adapter now supports application/octet-stream in the trigger request and response, with this new capability, it will be possible to invoke an integration using Binary content over REST. Similarly, it will be possible for an integration flow to return binary content in response to a request over REST.

About "application/octet-stream" MIME attachments:
A MIME attachment with the content type "application/octet-stream" is a binary file. Typically, it will be an application or a document that must be opened in an application, such as a spreadsheet or word processor. If the attachment has a filename extension associated with it, you may be able to tell what kind of file it is. A .exe extension, for example, indicates it is a Windows or DOS program (executable), while a file ending in .doc is probably meant to be opened in Microsoft Word. Read the complete article here.
