Windows beats and Logstash

Hi All,

Am trying to send the windows events from AD to logstash through winlogbeat. I have enabled the TLS in elastic and kibana , i use the cert and key generated by my CA. It works perfectly fine. I was trying to encrypt the data from beats to logstash as well.So I used the same set of certs since its a single node server.Iam unable to start the windows agent I get this message stating
