restrict access to issue while click on Secure buttom


we got an Request for a button just like the edit option in JIRA, called "Secure" which allows for restricted access to specific tickets when that button is clicked. 

Is there a way to show the ticket is secured ? A flag on the ticket which gets highlighted to indicate the JIRA is secured.
Only users on specific DL should be able to view/edit when the ticket is secured. 

please advice

I think you should use security schemes for this functionality. You create a security level to which you grant access to certain groups,  roles,  users etc. Then you make a global transition "Secure" and in the post function for this transition you set Security level to your created security level. Only users who were granted the security level access will be able to see the issue. There will be a sign on the issue that the issue is secured. Security levels grant only browse permission.  You can not use them for restricting editing.  But if it is the case, it would be out of the box solution.
