You can't. Jira doesn't do field level security - a field is either on the screen or it isn't and you can't change who can or can't see/edit it by user.

Some of the system fields do have this - assignee, reporter, fix version, scheduled date etc - these are controlled by permissions, but the rest, and all your custom fields, don't do it.

See for the request, why it's not going to be implemented soon and a LOT of workarounds
