The CMS software contains a widespread set of algorithms to identify jets originating from the weak decay of b-quarks. Different physical properties of b-hadron decays like lifetime information, secondary vertices and soft leptons are exploited. The variety of selection algorithms range from simple and robust ones, suitable for early data-taking and online environments as the trigger system, to highly discriminating ones, exploiting all the information available. Their performance is evaluated, in the long term and startup scenarios.
