Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) is a high-performance, low-latency, reliable, connectionless protocol for delivering datagrams. It is developed by Oracle Corporation.

It was included in the Linux kernel 2.6.30 which was released on 9th of June, 2009. The code was contributed by the OpenFabrics Alliance (OFA).[1]

On October 19, 2010, VSR announced a vulnerability within the Linux 2.6.30 kernel which could result in a local privilege escalation via the kernel's implementation of RDS.[2] This was subsequently fixed.[3][citation needed]
