The University of Virginia Grid Computing Group http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~humphrey/GCG/ is working on a couple of projects using SecPAL. The first is an integration of SecPAL with GridFTP, the common grid file transfer service. You can read about this project here http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~humphrey/papers/GridFTP_SecPAL_2007.pdf. The second project is to use SecPAL for survivable grids, that is grids which reconfigure themselves to handle changing system priorities or disruptions in the underlying resource fabric. In essence, SecPAL is used to allow different virtual organizations (VOs) to control access to the resources they manage to support dynamically changing privileges for applications and/or users. You can read about the status of this project here http://www.cs.virginia.edu/~gsw2c/research/sc07_wasson.pdf.
