Wiki platform for potentially confidential/sensitive data
July 31, 2014 9:51 AM   Subscribe

Last year, I asked about a simple wiki platform for many users, and Wiki Spot sounded like a good fit. I slacked off, Wiki Spot is no longer accepting new accounts, and I have additional criteria: some level of security/hiding for confidential and/or sensitive data. Also, I have a Dreamhost account that I'm not utilizing, and DH has a number of wiki platforms that can be installed. Any suggestions for platforms to use or avoid?

MediaWiki has settings for restricting view of pages based on user access. So you could simply make pages hidden to anyone below level $foo, or pages could be created then deleted, and have deleted pages only available for $foo.

Do you require the extra security for purely proprietary reasons, or to comply with laws or regulations (e.g. HIPPA)? If the latter, I'd tread carefully to make sure your solution is 100% compliant.

As far as I know, there are no regulations about the data, it's more an issue of private companies sharing their data with public agency planners. Those companies often see their data as something that their competitors could use to get a competitive advantage.
