Can't get WPA3 to work...

The "WPA 3 Specification Version 3.0" Document from Wi-Fi Alliance
says: "A WPA3 STA shall perform server certificate validation when
using EAP-TTLS, EAP-TLS, EAP-PEAPv0 or EAP-PEAPv1 EAP methods."

So, at least these methods seem to be allowed by the specs.

Nevertheless, iPhone fails after entering username/password (it's
always a pain to connect iOS devices to enterprise networks), Windows
11 only offers Smartcard or EAP-TLS (had no luck with that so far,
despite client certificate installed).
