CrmSecurityException – Unable to access Organization

The other day, I was suddenly not able to access my CRM organization.

I was getting “Unhandled exception” message when I browse the Organization URL.

I tried to restart the my application server IIS, but no luck.

When I checked the event viewer for more details, I observed a below Warning message

Unable to connect organization
