In order to solve this problem, it is necessary to define different levels of security. 
At the browser level, we can only assume that the browser is secure, so this solution can be implemented by simply combining webrtc and webauthn. Using Webrtc API to get the media and secure it with webauthn's key capabilities.
At the operating system level, key management can be linked to the camera data. Keys are usually located in secure storage devices, such usually protected by TEE or SE.
