Abstract
We define 2­gerbes bound by complexes of braided group­like stacks. We prove a classifica­
tion result in terms of hypercohomology groups with values in abelian crossed squares and cones
of morphisms of complexes of length 3. We give an application to the geometric construction of
certain elements in Hermitian Deligne cohomology groups.
