Password protected printing in domain environment

In order to keep a check on printing of confidential documents, we want to password protect the print option in Windows 7, Windows 8 PCs.  After issuing print command print should prompt from a username and password. There are already softwares available for this. But they don't satisfy all my requirements.
 I want to develop my own software in .net, Kindly suggest me where to start from.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Thanks Ankit

But we need to implement this solution on hundreds or (maybe thousands if successful) of computers. It will be cost effective to develop our own software. Moreover all the application available in market don't offer all the reporting options.
