MediaWiki - Privacy enhanced access control extension

MediaWiki is a free Wiki software, which is used for many OS wikis (e.g., Wikipedia). For some purposes there may be a need for adjusted acess rights for pecific wiki pages to enhance the privacy of the user. This extension enhances MediaWiki by allowing fine-grained, user-controlled access control to wiki pages. Using the PRIME core, the access control may be based on anonymous credentials and all released data is logged within a data track. After having installed the extension, an additional “edit policy” tab is added to Wikipages. Naturally, it can be seen as a reference implementation, how the PRIME core can be used.
