The Secure Multiplex Coding (SMC) is a technique to remove rate loss in the coding for wiretap channels and broadcast channels with confidential messages caused by the inclusion of random bits into transmitted signals. SMC replaces the random bits by other meaningful secret messages, and a collection of secret messages serves as the random bits to hide the rest of messages. In the previous researches, multiple secret messages were assumed to have independent and uniform distributions, which is difficult to be ensured in practice. The authors remove this restrictive assumption by a generalization of the channel resolvability technique.
