npm audits security service

Hello.

It would be great to find out, how works /-/npm/v1/security/audits service.

Sometimes I’m trying to use npm audit and already know about some packages’ vulnerabilities in my dependencies. But the service doesn’t return them. It’s hard to find out what is reason for this behavior. Possibly, it depends with a local package in dependencies or with a bug in service.

Please, add somewhere in docs an explanation of this service.
