Turn SSL verification off inside download.file

Is there a way to disable SSL verification by default inside download.file?

The situation is that we have an internal CRAN mirror in my company, but it uses a self-signed SSL cert. As far as I can tell, this causes download.file to fail, and since install.packages makes use of download.file, this means installing packages also fails. I'd like to turn the verification check off to see if this fixes the problem.

OS is Linux (actually running inside a container), R is 4.1.1.
