Some datafiles cannot be read because are offline or corrupted.

Check the OFFLINE files:

select file#, status, name from v$datafile where status not in ('SYSTEM', 'ONLINE');

heck if you have a good backup from which you can restore any  problematic data file.

1) First restore the problematic datafiles

2) Mount the database and ONLINE those datafiles

SQL> startup mount;
SQL> alter database datafile  file1#, .. , filen# online;

3) Recover the database

 SQL> recover database;

4) Open database

SQL > alter database open ;
Second case: If you got this error on Windows system, then add the following line to $ORACLE_HOME\NETWORK\ADMIN\sqlnet.ora
SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES= (NULL)
