Found this, which seems to be what you need:

Internet Connect

After the successful installation of the CA and client certificates open Internet Connect.app and add a new 802.1X Connection (in the File menu). Go to the new 802.1X tab and open Configuration: Edit Configurations.

Give the connection a useful description, choose Network Port: AirPort, choose the correct Wireless Network and only tick the TLS box in the Authentication list.

Click TLS and open Configure. Choose the newly imported client certificate.

This should be sufficient to get a successful Connect to the WPA2 EAP-TLS network.
