Change IE user authentication  globally

We are implementing a new firewall and it requires us to change IE user authentication on the Internet Security Zone and Local Intranet Security Zone.
How do we apply a group policy to make this change for all workstations in our domain. we have 2008 R2 DC and about 100 Windows 7 workstations.

On the DC I'm looking at the Default domain policy in the GPME and one site suggests going to user config, windows settings, internet explorer maintenance-security. I do not see an internet explorer maintenance option?

So I must be in the wrong section.

The path you referenced can be found below. What settings exactly are you trying to change?

I've seen it in screen shots on other technet/forum articles...but where exactly is that group policy from? I'm looking at the Default Domain Policy on our DC and that option doesn't exist.

After installing IE10 the option disappears in 2008 R2.

If it is still there after installing IE10/11 it might be installed using RSAT for windows 8 or 2012.

So are we going to have to go to each machine and change this for each user?

I dont see why. All options for Internet Explorer Maintenance are still scathered over computer and user policies.

Have a look under

user config-> policies->Administrative templates->Windows components->Internet Explorer -> Internet Control Page-> Security Page
Pretty sure you will find there what you are looking for.
