How did you configure eapol_test? If it is configured to validate the
server certificate (i.e., ca_cert is set), it should reject expired
certificates. If ca_cert is not set, the exact behavior depends on which
TLS library you are using (if I remember correctly, OpenSSL ends up
allowing the connection while the internal TLS implementation will
reject the expired certificate).
