    Kiosk isn't an AD thing as such. Its a way to set up a machine that only allows access to a single application. If that application fails or is shut down the machine will reboot and restart the application.

    Kiosk machines are commonly used as point of sale, in warehouses or for public access to an organisation.

    You can use GPOs to configure Kiosk machines:

    The link in the previous reply is a good explanation.

    You can configure domain joined machines to be kiosks using GPO
