Thanks Kurt,
It seems it is enough for my needs: to store the certificate somewhere, 
and get a proxy from there using Kepler actors.

Is this true, that with your Kepler actor you retrieve the proxy from the 
MyProxy part of GAMA directly? Or through the portal's user account?

Thanks for the explanation.
