Have a pic? It sounds like the hydro boost system for your brakes. If its leaking it would be power steering fluid or brake fluid. Check to see if either is low.

Its the hydrobooster for the power brakes. It runs off power steering fluid like said above.

The black cylinder itself is a nitrogen charged hydraulic accumulator, it hold a small pressure reserve for the hydro-boost braking system...
