If you want users to have to login with a password, then check out 
Cookbook/AuthUser. However, it's not quite clear what you want -- if you 
want to record who changes what, then AuthUser is a good start.

You can do this with AuthUser -- basically a totally open wiki.

Then also check out the section "Setting the Author Name" on the 
AuthUser page.
