SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at protecting against the so-called email forging. In simple terms, it indicates sending a message from one email and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the objective to scam in some manner the person opening it. When the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is created. The record is stored on all the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic all over the world, so they all can identify whether an email message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is performed at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second one it's removed and it never reaches the intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will prevent any unwanted people from using your email addresses for malicious objectives.
