DNS TXT records for SPF, DKIM and DMARC

A DNS TXT record is a text file added to the DNS which contains things like; the list of authorized sending hosts and IP addresses for a domain as in the case of SPF, and instructions on where to return emails violating DMARC.

DNS TXT records are also used for other purposes as well, these are just a few of the email example use cases.
