To restrict a object to a particular Group at the Universe level


I have a object which should be restricted only to a particular group at the universe level.So when i define the universe we have to have explicit security that will restrict access to this object information from reports and from ad-hoc queries.I should restrict the object only to the particular group by a role based security.

Please help me out in this case.

Thanks in advance,
