Windows Integrity Levels | Privilege Structure | Escalation Route

GRAPHICAL VIEW of Account Types and Privileges associated with them on windows

I have tried here to explain the things comparing them with Linux. Windows has Integrity Levels , which are obtained via Access Tokens , calculated by SID {Service Identifiers} , managed by Local Security Authority. Integrity : as name says how much things are modified from actual content. And so Integrity Level decides how much permission you have to modify any files or directories on windows.
