The danger in using a wiki as a collaboration tool is that other people will edit it. For examlpe, the stuff on cryptographic file systems should be on that page, not here.

comment from TA (Joe)

That looks like some of the right inroads. Remember that the paper is not very long, so you may want to focus on the three systems and do a deep analysis. Certainly some things to think about:

      Simpson's lecture where he talked about it
      Failure modes of such systems
      Challenges in using/installing
