Problem using ca_path to connect to a EAP-TLS network

I'm encountering problems connecting to a EAP-TLS network using
ca_path in my configuration (instead of ca_cert).

If I use:

ca_cert = "/usr/local/certs/ca_cert.pem"

in my configuration, I can connect and join the EAP-TLS network fine.

However, if I use:

ca_path = "/usr/local/certs"

I start seeing the following error in the wpa_supplicant debug output:

TLS: Certificate verification failed, error 20 (unable to get local
issuer certificate) depth 1 for '[deleted]'

Am I using ca_path correctly?
