How to apply Service account permissions

I need help in applying read-only rights for cn, userPrincipleName, preferred language and member of for a service account I created.  I was asked to do this for the setup on a new application at work but i'm not good at applying rights at this level.

If someone can map out the procedure.... Highlight service account-> right click > select properties > select security tab > click on advanced > slect edit.... I'm lost from here...
If any one has a good link to explain how to apply custom rights, that would help too.

Thanks for any help in advance.

To assign rights to a service accout, you would need to use GPO
computer configuration\windows settings\security settings\local policies\User Rights Assignment
Logon as a service (make sure to use one policy to grant this right to all your service accounts)
Lock Pages in Memory (same as above and depends on whether this is an option needed for the application you are installing.)

The account should remain only a domain user and will have the same rights as any user.

We have other accounts setup this way and have GPO's already applied to that OU to control access but this is an enterprise application service account and it has a requirement to have a custom set of attributes applied to allow it to work in AD. It needs to read as I mentioned in my question.  Thanks for your reply but that's not what I'm looking for.

Solution I discovered:
Highlight the OU where the service account resides> right click > select properties > select security tab > click on advanced > Authenticated Users or Domain Users > select edit > select Authenticated Users or Domain Users (this is your target group the permissions apply to) Apply rights on the Object and Properties tab.
NOTE: make sure there attributes you need permissions for are listed, they would have been created in the SCHEMA.
