Replacing half wall with banister and spindles

We are hoping to take out the horizontal half wall around the opening to the down stairs and replace it with newel posts, banister and spindles. How do we make sure that the newel posts will be sturdy? What do they get attached to?

You're probably going to have to take up some of the subfloor and do a little framing to create a place to bolt the newel posts where the half wall was.  This YouTube video is on railing posts for a deck but the concept is the same.
