In theory, you could do this if you are willing to implement the TLS
socket integration for the HTTPS client. However, the feature set
supported in the internal TLS code is limited to whatever is needed to
support EAP methods and that may not meet the needs of your use case for
HTTPS. For example, only TLS 1.0 is supported (i.e., no support for SSL
3.0) and that may result in not being able to connect to all HTTPS
