We don't usually bundle certificates with the supplicant.  (I believe 
there are some that come with OpenSSL, so as a side effect you will get 
those.)  However, there will be an easy way to add new trusted 
certificates to the store.  So you should be able to easily get it 
working with certificates from anyone that can generate a certificate.  
(Internally, the Open1X team uses a mixture of self-signed single level, 
self-signed multi-level, and commercial certificates.)

Hopefully this will meet your needs.
