To be honest, that option doesn't really matter in regards to the fact
if you are using a cert issued by a private CA or a well known trusted
CA. It just means "Who cares who issued this certificate, just trust
it". You can use a privately issued certificate and still enable
verification but importing the trusted root of the CA who issued the
certificate and add it to the correct trust store.
