Implement a knife ssl replacement within chef-client

For users using self-signed certs or certs not signed by a trusted CA we need to fetch the cert previously done with knife ssl fetch <chef server url>. With the removal of knife this is no longer available when using the unattended or userdata bootstrapping methods (https://docs.chef.io/install_bootstrap/#bootstrapping-with-user-data) where the node bootstraps itself to the chef server using chef-client commands.
