I'm using NetworkManager 1.0.6 on an openSUSE Leap 42.1 with KDE5's
"Plasma NM" applet.

I use EAP-TLS only on my Mac, so can't say if ait actually *works* on
this distro.

Earlier versions of KNetworkManager and Plasma NM ill-advisedly
defaulted to "Use System CA store". It took me and others quite a fight
in the bug tracking system to convince people that this is nonsense and
that this option a) shouldn't exist in the first place, but b) should
default to off if they really think they need to present this option.

That seems to have worked, as the UI currently does not present that option.

BTW, you didn't tell us which UI *you* are using in front of NM?
