### What is binary bits numbering? (Definition)

The bit numbering of a binary number in a sequence is the position of the binary digits (0 and 1) in a binary number.

Bit numbering allows binary data to be represented and manipulated in an organized and unambiguous way when encoding data.

### What are LSb and MSb?

LSb (Least Significant Bit) designates the least significant bit of a binary number, the one that represents the smallest value.

MSb (Most Significant Bit), on the other hand, represents the most significant bit, carrying the greatest value in a binary number.

LSb 0 means that position 0 is associated with the least significant bit.

Example:

Position LSb 0 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 0 3-4-6

MSb 0 means that position 0 is associated with the most significant bit.

Example:

Position MSb 0 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 0 1-3-4

### How to encrypt bits positions?

Each bit is assigned to a unique position in a number, and its value is determined based on that position.

Example: In a byte (8 bits) using the notation LSb0, the smallest bit (LSb) is noted in position 0 and the largest bit (MSb) is in position 7.

To code the position of the bits, in a binary number, by default, only the positions of 1 are noted, by complement, the other values are 0.

Example: 01000101 has its 1 in positions 0,2,6 (LSb0 notation)

### How to decrypt bits positions?

Bit position is described relative to a binary number size (block size). The digits or numbers represent the position of the bits at 1 in the binary number.

Example: 0,3,7 in an 8-bit block LSb0 represents the binary code 10001001

### How to recognize a bits position ciphertext? (Identification)

Bit position encoded messages include numbers indicating the position of the 1 bits in a binary number.

If the numbers describe bytes (8 bits) then the numbers are between 0 and 7, (even between 1 and 8 if the numbering starts at 1).
