What do you mean by "Wiki security"?  There are quite a few different
flavours.

  * Public read access does not compromise the server.

  * Public write access does not compromise the server.

  * Public read or write access to some Wiki resources can be
    restricted.

  * Public write access does not imply read access to all Wiki
    resources.

To my knowledge, there are very few implementations that satisfy any
of these seemingly harmless requirements (if they implement access
control at all).
