I think you may be referring to the work that the RoadMap project (http://library.leeds.ac.uk/roadmap-project) is looking at.
There was a discussion on the JISC Managing Research Data list: 
JISCMRD Archive - Controlled access to data in EPrints (https://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?A2=JISCMRD;be429098.1305)
- the initial post I copied to the EP-Tech list on 08-05-2013 and there were a few replies here too (http://www.eprints.org/tech.php/ -> a couple of clicks on the 'prev' link should get you there).

The work coming out of this discussion is still being commissioned - but will be made available to all once complete!

There is already some access-control stuff there: different grades of 
users, embargos for records, and multiple options for authenticating users.

Both the authentication routines and user-types stuff was built to be
