Your example uses a syntax that is marked as being "obsolete" in the man

There is an error in your example as that syntax expects the device to be
the last argument,not the mapper path.Your example fail with the following

[root at mtz ink]# cryptsetup create -d /dev/urandom /dev/loop0  to_be_wiped
Device to_be_wiped doesn't exist or access denied.
[root at mtz ink]#
