Thank you /K, let me try, in case you have additional references w.r.t. sending EAP-AKA authentication requests using eapol_test please share

    That sounds really painful. Instead of even trying to build eapol_test on MacOS I resorted to using Docker. A simple Dockerfile, like this, builds eapol_test for you:
    — CUT ---
    FROM debian:buster
    RUN apt update; apt install -y make gcc wget pkg-config libssl-dev libdbus-1-dev libnl-3-dev libnl-genl-3-dev
    RUN wget -O wpa_supplicant.tar.gz
    RUN tar xzf wpa_supplicant.tar.gz
    WORKDIR wpa_supplicant-2.9/wpa_supplicant
    RUN cp defconfig .config
    RUN sed -i 's/#CONFIG_EAPOL_TEST=y/CONFIG_EAPOL_TEST=y/' .config
    RUN make eapol_test
    RUN cp eapol_test /usr/local/bin/
    — CUT ---
    To build it using Docker simply do: 'docker build -t eapol_test .’ and at last, starting the container:  'docker run -it --entrypoint bash eapol_test’ and you now have a fully working eapol_test and can do whatever tests you want without having to deal with MacOS.
