Abstract This paper studies the secure multiterminal source coding problem with actions. In particular, one main encoder observes an independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) source $X^n$ and wishes to compress this source lossyly to the decoder. Another encoder observes the source $Y^n$ and wants to compress this source losslessly to the decoder. A passive eavesdropper having access to the side information $Z^n$ can observe the information bits sent by the main encoder. In this scenario, the decoder is allowed to choose actions affecting the correlated source $Y^n$ and the side information $Z^n$. For this problem, we characterize the optimal rate-distortion-cost-leakage region for a discrete memoryless setting.
