    This is a computer based policy -> look under admin templates -> terminal services.  you can set this up one of two ways.  the first is to just create an OU and assing the GP to the OU, then place the users in the OU.  the other is to add a new policy to an existing ou, and remove the read rights from everyone on the GP except the security group you wish the policy to affect.
