Adobe has recently updated the security certificate on their authorisation server and it has caused issues for all ADE users who are not using the latest version (4.5.7). To resolve the issue please update your ADE to the latest version.
You can download the update here: https://www.adobe.com/solutions/ebook/digital-editions/download.html
Please note that the website currently lists the latest version as 4.5.6 but when you install it will state it is 4.5.7.
