To be clear: you don't. EAP is authentication. MAC "authentication"
is just checking if the MAC address is in a known list.
Terminology matters. Using the right terminology means that the

using the wrong design.

If all you want is a "known MAC" list, then just put them into a table
in SQL. Then, select MAC addresses from the table at run time. If
they're found, continue. If not, reject.
