Unable to connect to Azure Event Hub using the Confluent .Net client

I am trying to use the Confluent .Net client (1.5.2) to connect to an Azure Event Hub but I keep getting an SSL handshake failed error.

My Confluent ProducerConfig looks like this:

var config = new ProducerConfig
{
    BootstrapServers = "ehNamespace.servicebus.windows.net:9093",
    SecurityProtocol = SecurityProtocol.SaslSsl,
    SaslMechanism = SaslMechanism.Plain,
    SaslUsername = "$ConnectionString",
    SaslPassword = "Endpoint=sb://ehNamespace.servicebus.windows.net/;SharedAccessKeyName=accessKeyName;SharedAccessKey=accessKey",
    SslCaLocation = "cacert.pem",
    Debug = "security,broker,protocol"
};

When I build the ProducerClient, it fails to connect with an SSL handshake failure:

I have tried this with two different Event Hubs with no luck. Can someone help me understand why this is failing and what I can do to get it working?

Thanks!
