The Edugate federation involves several Irish higher education institutions that have agreed upon a standard method of sharing information about users, in order to enable easy access to certain services with their existing login credentials.

The Edugate federation is a service operated by HEAnet in co-operation with HEAnet client institutions such as Trinity College.

The end result is that staff and students can log into several HEAnet and other internet-based services using their College username and network login password. This removes the need to maintain separate accounts on these systems and helps prevent password issues.

For example, the services below are accessed by Edugate federated access:
