Logstash Lumberjack Output

In the documentation for lumberjack output, under the ssl_certificate setting it just says, "This is a required setting" and "ssl certificate to use."

My questions are: what is this certificate used for, and why is it required? How do I perform client authentication, assuming this is not already being performed?

Note: I am sending logs from one logstash (client) to another (server). My server side is a beats input with no CA's specified and ssl_verify_mode => "none". When I tried adding the CA and specifying ssl_verify_mode to force_peer it did not work.

The ruby lumberjack client uses it. As I understand it the cert_store should contain the CA of the server certificate that the client is to connect to. I see no way to enable client authentication.
