|This paper investigates the capacity region of a discrete memoryless (DM) multiple access wiretap (MAC-WT) channel where, besides confidential messages, the users have also open messages to transmit. All these messages are intended for the legitimate receiver but only the confidential messages need to be protected from the eavesdropper. By using random coding, we find an achievable secrecy rate region, within which perfect secrecy can be realized, i.e., all users can communicate with the legitimate receiver with arbitrarily small probability of error, while the confidential information leaked to the eavesdropper tends to zero.
