[NTG-context] TLS and externalfigure

I have images hosted on a local web server using a self-signed
certificate. For example:


When using ConTeXt, the image cannot be retrieved; a verified signed
certificate works as expected.

Using wget, self-signed certificates can be forced:

wget --no-check-certificate https://localhost/images/.../file.png

Does ConTeXt have a way to ignore/bypass certificate validation? If so, how?

(Note: the certificate's common name is currently blank, which does
not match 'localhost' -- I can fix that if required...)

Thank you!
