 The server comes with scripts to create certificates.  If you read "eap.conf" in version 2, it tells you to read raddb/certs/README.

  If you search for "certificates" in the Wiki, the second link describes how to create certificates.  There's also my page:

  It' been documented extensively for 10 years.  In documentation that ships with the server.
