From the homepage MyProxy is defined as

MyProxy is open source software for managing X.509 Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) security credentials (certificates and private keys). MyProxy combines an online credential repository with an online certificate authority to allow users to securely obtain credentials when and where needed. Users run myproxy-logon to authenticate and obtain credentials, including trusted CA certificates and Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs).

With LCG MyProxy is used by a number of services such as the FTS service and the RB service.

It is also used by other services such as PhedEX to perform proxy certificate renewal on behalf of users. An example of this process has been documented for the RAL MyProxy service but could easily be extended to other MyProxy servers.
