Linux Baseline

Can someone with experience in this field please explain to me what is involved with creating a linux baseline?  I was asked by my supervisor to create a secure linux baseline.  

Is there any documents showing how to create a baseline?  What does a baseline exist of?  

Is it just a base configuration?

Your supervisor probably means a secure Linux configuration, ie:

Minimal Install
Removal of non-required packages
Security configurations in place
etc

Perhaps you'd better ask your supervisor what they mean by `baseline`
