Display permissions for a wiki--how specific can you get?

An organizationally obsessed GM wants to create a wiki-like site to house information on his created world. Challenge: he also wants a way to limit what information users can see on a given page, on a user by user basis.

My husband, after watching his gamers furiously trying to take notes and constantly ask "what do I know about [blah]", decided that it would be much easier if he could just put all the information about his game world up online somewhere. The most logical format would seem to be a wiki.
His big requirement is that the wiki or CMS app he uses have the ability to decide who can see certain things. Not just certain pages, but even sections of text on certain pages.
For example, if user A goes to the page on ents he sees,
"Ents are large trees that happen to move around and talk. Freaky, no?"
But if user B goes to the page on ents he sees,
"Ents are large trees that happen to move around and talk. Freaky, no? Oh, and by the way, the party met one on day 135 and you had tea together."
Are there any wiki or CMS apps out there that have this type of granularity to their permissions?
