Identity verification

We have a unique course model and have found it hard to find a product to verify our students' identities throughout a course. We thought about trying to use built in Canvas functionality and I am wondering if anyone out there has tried this. We thought about using the video recording option in the rich content editor to have students record a short video showing a government issued ID and possibly a code or date verification of some kind. We would do this 2 ways...1 using Assignments to periodically verify a student's identity in the course. The second is to use the same functionality in a quiz question in those courses that have midterms or finals. Has anyone tried this? Or has anyone out there found a way to use a Canvas tool for identity verification?

Thank you in advance for your feedback and ideas!
