I'm trying to setup Certificate Based Authentication against Unified Manager 6.4 to use with NMSDK.
I did manage to setup CBA against DFM 5.2, but I didnt found any option on the Unified Manager: the "dfm" command on console has no 'dfm ssl service' option anymore
Because I couldn't find any topic on CBA in the Unified Manager 6.4 manual either, I am not sure, if it's still supported.
Do I have to use LDAP for certificate based authentication?

I do not believe SSL cert based auth is possible with Unified Manager 6+ releases. I checked the SDK 5.5 docs and found this that agrees:
The authentication style
Following are the supported values:
To authenticate the server, server certificate verification and hostname verification is required.
For more information, see the APIsNaServer::set_client_cert_and_key(),NaServer::set_ca_certs(),NaServer::set_server_cert_verification(),andNaServer::set_hostname_verification().
