Connecting post to concrete


I have been looking at placing a railing down our steps that land on a concrete pad. What would be the best way to attach the 4x4 post to the concrete pad next to the bottom step?

Got a picture?
There's no great way to install a railing that's just attached to the surface of a slab.
You can attach it but it's going to move.
Some options are to go with a powder coated railing and core drill some holes and you can epoxy them in place.

Or set the 4 X 4 beside the steps set in concrete.
