Hmm, I was at a coworking space some time ago and they had an EAP/PEAP secured
network there. Just out of curiosity I tried to log in with my macbook (latest
mac os) and to my surprise I did *not* get a certificate warning. I concluded
that for probably a bit more money you could get certificates that are accepted
by default by supplicants, but I didn't check further. Could this be so?
