UnityWebRequest does not indicate that a SSL certificate is invalid



Steps to reproduce:

1. Open the project.
2. Hit play
3. Notice there is a webpage output to the Debug.Log which includes:
<div id="content">
<h1 style="font-size: 12vw;">

Reproduced with: 5.3.6p7, 5.4.2f1, 5.5.0b8

Expected: UnityWebRequest somehow recognises that the SSL certificate is invalid, e.g. with an error, or failing in some way

    @NPSKIR yes, the "- No way to just say "trust self-signed" certificates " bothers us

    Overall it just seems like SSL/TLS was not even considered in the design of the UnityWebRequest API.


    - No way to simply have a certificate as an asset of the project and then trust that certificate when making HTTPS requests
    - No way to have your own signing certificates that establish a chain of trust that you make yourself
    - No way to just say "trust self-signed" certificates
    - SSL-related errors are all "unknown error"

    There are dozens of gripes about this on the forums -- these problems affect real uses cases in both development and production.
