Please be more precise. What is your scenario, who is the tls server and
who is the client.

The peer did not send any certificate is normal. A TLS client is not
obliged to send a certificate and in your case didn't. That's why
the server cannot verify it. If you want the client to send a
certificate you have to specify a certificate and a key, that are
suitable for signing.
