Right, the standard is called 802.1X. The name should be shown correctly at least in the UI.

Fixed in nm-connection-editor upstream: https://git.gnome.org/browse/network-manager-applet/commit/?id=92a694a1e0a54a26940c2c232b48be056e616ad9

Clone the bug for control-center [network] component to have a fix in Gnome UI.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 07:53:00 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 3 Stephen Wadeley 2016-11-24 08:09:30 EST

checked in my Fedora 25 workstation

I see its fixed in  nm-connection-editor
but not in control-center [network] component.

Will attempt to clone as suggested.

Thank you Blueowl
