You can find an example in luatex's code, eg hide_lua_value() in

Here too you can look for inspiration in luatex, section 3.1.3 of the manual say
that the following function are disabled by default in tex mode:

library functions
os      execute exec setenv rename remove tmpdir
io      popen output tmpfile
lfs     rmdir mkdir chdir lock touch

(some of them are not standard Lua functions).
