Random Stuff of Randomness


MacOS Ventura keeps asking for permissions during connect to WPA2 Enterprise WiFI

Since Ventura, when connecting to a WAP2-Enterprise network I keep getting asked to allow something. Yes, the question is very specific, eapolclient wants eleveted rights for … ummm ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It turns out, that eapolclient needs access to the private key of the the wifi certificate. This is simple to identify by:

  1. filtering for certificates only
  2. find your wpa2 cert
  3. underneath, there should be a user certificate » double click

To solve the permanent login screens on connect, add eapolclient to the list of allowed applications and don’t forget to hit the [Save Changes] button.

  • click on +
  • add: /System//Library/SystemConfiguration/EAPOLController.bundle/Contents/Resources/eapolclient
  • click [Save Changes]
  • you will have to authenticate one last time

That’s it.
