Now that the site is no longer down, and it is confirmed that I'm not attending AppSec EU,

Please know that OWASP website is not accessible from Iran.

It might be some sanctions from Google, or any other providers the OWASP is working with.

I have much trouble collaborating things here in Iran, so is it possible to setup a mirror around this? or somehow fix the problem?

The browser connects, sends the request, but no response is ever received. I think the Location header is sent, since the URL is changed to https://owasp.org, but the actual page content is a no-go. It also sometimes loads, but takes a decade for it to happen. Mostly it's a timeout.

This site also confirms, most of the time with timeout errors:
Notice: This message is digitally signed, this means that its source and integrity are verifiable.
Certain mail clients would automatically verify this email and present a "signed and sealed" sign, but others might just provide  a downloadable file (smime.p7s), which includes the X.509 certificate and the signature body.
In this case, you can either ignore it or manually verify it. Read more on this at Certified E-Mail with Comodo and Thunderbird at AbiusX.com
