available anymore. If you want to disable this
post-check, you should give OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE
to Net::HTTP#verify_mode= instead of.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
