mediawiki is always a good choice. That's what wikipedia runs on, and may
be slightly more involved to install and configure than other, lighter
weight wikis, but it industrial strength.

In addition, it's not too hard to add some security - where I was working
a couple of years ago, one of our developers knocked out, in short order,
an area that was only accessible by password.
