I like Dokuwiki.

It can authenticate against quite a few different methods, flatfile,
MySQL, LDAP etc. You can even plug it into an existing user database
(for instance, I run some forums and authenticate dokuwiki off that

It's also pretty good for access control. You can configure certain
groups/users to access specific pages and namespaces. Overall it's
pretty good.
