2.) pack it up as a certificate before transfer

3.) transfer it however you like
4.) receiving end decodes it back to original state with certutil
> certutil.exe -decode output.txt decoded.txt
> get-content decoded.txt
- create a file you want to encode/transfer
- convert it to raw bytes
- base64 it
- wrap it into a legit certificate file
- now you can transfer it
- then on the receiving end use certutil.exe to decode it back to it's original state
