HTTPS can help, especially when used with some kind of certificate/SPKI pinning.  Tor can help too, especially when used with onion addresses.

Are there any mirrors with a hidden service onion address? If so, I

Are there any mirror operators out there who might be interested in
adding a tor hidden service, but don't know how? If so, contact me, I'd
be happy to help you set it up.
