I also wouldn't bother to have such data stored as wiki pages: they're
work files, mostly 'unreadable' by any average user (and wouldn't make
sense to most admins as well) so a plain .txt anywhere inside a /work/
directory would be just fine.
As far as security is concerned, most probably the file can
antomatically be created in a way that just the wiki can read/write
it. An odd/random name could be used. Also/or an .htaccess can be set
inside the /work/ folder. Just quick thoughts.
