Which EAP-FAST server are you using for authentication? The PAC format
is implementation specific..

Many EAP-FAST deployments use in-band provisioning which allows the PAC
to be generated during the first authentication with the server. What
kind of use case are you working with? If you want to generate a PAC for
testing wpa_supplicant, you can use eapol_test to perform EAP-FAST
authentication with in-band provisioning (i.e., the same authentication
that wpa_supplicant would be able to do if PAC was not configured).
