You'll need to edit comments.vmd (& perhaps comments.soy) to remove commenting from anonymous users.
Try searching <confluence-install>/confluence/decorators/components/comments.vmd for
#if (!$action.isPrintableVersion()) #requireResourcesForContext("atl.comments") <div id="comments-section" class="pageSection group">
#if (!$action.isPrintableVersion() && $!remoteUser) #requireResourcesForContext("atl.comments") <div id="comments-section" class="pageSection group">
I've added && $!remoteUser to the if statement above.

I'm sorry to say that it isn't currently possible to do this using a vanilla install of Confluence but we do have a feature request to ask that we incorporate this kind of fucntionality in a future release of Confluence so I would suggest that you watch/vote/comment on the issue so that our developers are aware of the desire for this functionality.
All the best,
See https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-7742- Closed, looks like complex Comment Security logic won't be added to the core product.
See https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-5639- Open when I wrote this, for a slighly simpler proposal for extra comment security
