SSL settings for Kibana

I am using the latest stable releases (7.1.x). Reading the documentation for Auditbeat and how to setup the Kibana dashboards that come with it, it says that you can enable ssl for the connection to Kibana. The example configuration says: ""
setup.kibana.ssl.enabled: true
setup.kibana.ssl.certificate_authorities: ["/etc/pki/root/ca.pem"]
setup.kibana.ssl.certificate: "/etc/pki/client/cert.pem"
setup.kibana.ssl.key: "/etc/pki/client/cert.key

I wonder what role the setup.kibana.ssl.certificate and setup.kibana.ssl.key options have. If I have understood the documentation correctly, these are used for client authentication. This makes sense when configuring ssl for the elasticsearch output of Auditbeat, but in Kibana's documentation, I haven't found mentions of client certificates being used when connecting to Kibana.

So, my question is, are these keys meaningful for configuring the Kibana endpoint in Auditbeat?
