What version of Go are you using (go version)?

$ go version
go version go1.12.1 darwin/amd64

Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?


What operating system and processor architecture are you using (go env)?

go env Output
$ go env
not important

What did you do?

import (

// abridged version
func checkIsTerminal(fd *osFile) bool {
	if fd != nil {
		return terminal.IsTerminal(int(fd.Fd()))
	return false

What did you expect to see?

no "crypto" or "ssh" wording in import directive - there is nothing is going on what is cryptography-related

What did you see instead?

Since it has "crypto" part in a path, we have to explain to our legal department what do we do here, why do we need it, and how it affects whole solution software export restrictions.

It would be nice to have non-crypto and non-password related parts to be moved into library that has nothing to do with "crypto" or "ssh", as it definitely has more utility than just for ssh-related work.

We've created exactly for this purpose. But the move hasn't been done yet.

This is related to issue #13104.
