Is it possible to authenticate with only a self-signed certificate (without basic auth) via NEST 6.x client to an Elasticsearch 6.8 cluster that has SSL/TLS enabled? If so, what are the requirements (ie. subscription level, realm) necessary and is there a NEST code example to establish the connection?
