SSL Certificates without valid certification needs alternative

Description

Me and other people would appreciate an option to allow unverified SSL for own sources (like Chrome, FF, Es File Explorer do) to get connection again (to private Webdavs, SFTP sources) - without forcing validation of certs.


atm people get: ERROR: CCurlFile::FillBuffer - Failed: Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with given CA certificates(60) without valid certification.


Why needed:

Having encrypted traffic is already one step above http/ftp - even without verification, and generally require using valid certification cause problems some people are not able to solve. Forum conversation: https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=331918&page=2
